Motor Vehicle License Fees

Beginning in the 2016 tax year, personal property taxes are prorated for vehicles bought and/or sold after tax assessment. Be sure to contact the DMV and Commissioner of the Revenue to change your address and vehicle information and ensure you are paying taxes to the proper locality.

Because the Town does not issue window decals for motor vehicles, these fees are reflected on your personal property tax bill.

All taxes and licensing fees are due by December 5 of each year.

However, if you obtain ownership of a vehicle (excluding trades) during the course of the year, you will need to pay a motor vehicle fee for that vehicle. Any vehicle being garaged in the Town of Christiansburg is subject to this fee.

Please be sure to respond to the form regarding personal property sent out by Montgomery County each year in the spring. Where your vehicle is garaged is determined by your address with the DMV. Please be sure to update your address and registration with the DMV within 30 days of moving.
