Tax Office - GENERAL PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX INFORMATION



  • Personal Property Taxes are all motor vehicles, mobile homes not listed on real estate, and office equipment and inventory.
  • Personal Property Taxes are available online by clicking the following link: TAX INQUIRY
  • If you did not receive a personal property tax statement, you may not have been assessed. You may contact us at (304) 455-8218 to see if you should have received a tax statement. You may be directed to the Assessor’s Office to file an assessment so a tax statement can be generated.
  • Your current year tax statement is based on what you owned and where you lived on July 1 of the previous year. If you owned a vehicle on July 1st, you will be responsible for the next full year of taxes on that vehicle.
  • If you moved out of state but had vehicles titled in West Virginia on July 1st of the previous year, then you are liable for the full year of taxes.
  • If there is a vehicle listed on your taxes that you did not own on July 1st of the previous year, you will need to contact the Assessor’s Office at (304) 455-8214 to have your assessment reviewed.
  • A Supplemental Tax is a personal property tax that was assessed after the tax books were finished. It is collected the same as any other personal property tax.
  • Personal Property Taxes are mailed out on July 15 and if not paid by April 30 of the following year will be published delinquent with publication fees and interest added.
  • You cannot renew your vehicle registration if you have any delinquent personal property taxes owing.
