What is the Personal Property Tax Relief Act?

The Personal Property Tax Relief Act of 1998 provides tax relief for passenger cars, motorcycles, and pickup or panel trucks having a registered gross weight of less than 7,501 pounds. To qualify, a vehicle must be owned by an individual or leased by an individual under a contract requiring the individual to pay the personal property tax; AND, be used 50% or less for business purposes.

Motor homes, trailers and farm use vehicles do not qualify for tax relief.

Does My Vehicle Qualify for Car Tax Relief?

If you can answer YES to any of the following questions, your motor vehicle is considered by State Law to have a business use and does NOT qualify for Car Tax Relief.

  1. Is more than 50% of the mileage for the year used as a business expense for Federal Income Tax purposes OR reimbursed by an employer?

  2. Is more than 50% of the depreciation associated with the vehicle deducted as a business expense for Federal Income Tax purposes?

  3. Is the cost of the vehicle expensed pursuant to Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Service Code?

  4. Is the vehicle leased by an individual and the leasing company pays the tax without reimbursement from the individual?

High Mileage Adjustment

You may have a vehicle that could qualify for a High Mileage Adjustment. The vehicle must be valued through the NADA Price Guide. If you believe your vehicle has high mileage, you must submit third-party documentation that clearly shows the mileage as of January 1 (e.g., state inspection receipt or service center repair receipt). This documentation needs to be legible in order for us to accept it and must be received by the Commissioner of the Revenue by February 15. You must file every year for this deduction.

Why Is My Email Address Needed?

Your email address is a unique identifier used to combine tickets marked for payment into one lump sum.

Is My Email Address Retained?

No, your email address is not stored by the municipality, merchants, or any other party. The file containing email information is erased after two hours have elapsed from the time the email address was entered.

The email address is stored in a "cookie" on your personal computer for a two hour time period. This enables your email address to be entered automatically for payment applications accessed during the two hour window, without having to enter email information again.
