Personal Property

Wise County taxes vehicles (cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles), mobile homes, business machines, shop tools used in any business or profession, business furniture, equipment, machinery and tools, etc.  Assessments are based on ownership as of January 1st.  Wise County does not prorate.  Any persons moving into the County during the year, or any person purchasing a new car during the year would not be liable for personal property tax during the January-December period; however, any person moving out of the County would be liable for that entire year's tax on those items in their possession on January 1, with payment due to the county on October 31 of each year.

A late payment penalty of 10% is added on November 1. Interest will also begin accruing beginning November 1.  Any payment postmarked on or before the October 31 deadline will be accepted without penalty.  

Failure to receive a tax bill will not relieve the penalty and interest charge that will be applied to all past due bills.  If there is a change of ownership, billing address or any other change pertaining to your taxes, please notify the Treasurer's Office and/or the Commissioner of the Revenue.

The personal property rate is set by the Board of Supervisors.  For 2020, the personal property tax rate is $1.65 per $100 of assessed value.  There is a (3) year statute of limitations for adjustments.

If there is any question as to the particular tax liability, please contact the Commissioner of the Revenue at (276) 328-3556 for further information.
