Yes, in most situations. If you move out of Virginia or to another Virginia locality that prorates personal property taxes, or if you sell or dispose of a motor vehicle, your personal property tax for that vehicle will generally be prorated. You will receive a credit or a refund of taxes paid for that portion of the remaining year, provided there are no other outstanding taxes or debts owed to the City. A temporary absence from the City does not make you eligible for a prorated refund. You are responsible to report any changes in residence or property ownership to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Commissioner of the Revenue. You may be required to submit documentation verifying the vehicle is no longer in the City or that ownership has changed.
