Personal Property Tax Relief
Owners of qualified vehicles assessed at $1,000 or less will receive 100% tax relief on that vehicle.
If the qualified vehicle is assessed at more than $1,000, tax relief will be given at a rate of 40% (up to a maximum of $20,000 in assessed value) for 2022.
A qualified vehicle is any passenger car, motorcycle, pickup or panel truck having a registered gross weight of less than 10,001 pounds. The vehicle must be owned or leased by an individual and NOT used for more than 50% business purposes. A leased vehicle for personal (non-business) use will also qualify when the lessee is responsible for payment of the personal property tax by the terms of the lease agreement.
A vehicle used predominantly for business purposes is considered a non-qualifying vehicle. This includes a vehicle leased by an individual and the leasing company pays the tax without reimbursement from the individual. Likewise, a pickup or panel truck having a registered gross weight of 10,001 pounds or greater does not qualify.
