INCREASE IN 2021 VEHICLE ASSESSMENTS
Due to shortages in both the new and used vehicle markets, prices have increased for 2021. In Chesapeake, the average assessment of a used car valued by the J. D. Power Official Used Car Guide increased by 15% over 2020. As a consequence, many Citizens may see an increase in their personal property tax bill for 2021. The large price increase also impacted the amount of the Personal Property Tax Relief Credit causing a decrease from 47% to 42%. Chesapeake, as well as all Hampton Roads localities uses the J. D. Power Official Used Car Guide to determine the assessed value of most vehicles.
Please review the following news article regarding the increase in the value of automobiles:
