Personal Property Vehicle Registration

If your vehicle has never been registered with the City of Alexandria, you must register it within 30 days of moving the vehicle into the City. Note that if a residential parking permit is needed, it must be obtained immediately at City Hall. (i.e. there is no 30-day grace period). To register, please complete and submit this form. We will contact you if we have any additional questions. Otherwise, we will mail you a bill for your vehicle personal property tax (car tax). If you lease a vehicle, the bill will be mailed to the registered owner, which is usually the leasing company.

You must also notify the City within 30 days if you dispose of a vehicle, change your address, or change the place at which the vehicle is normally garaged, since this may affect the jurisdiction responsible for collecting the tax and administering residential parking permits.
