Your vehicle must be garaged in a City of Falls Church jurisdictional address to continue. The City listed on your mailing address is not necessarily the same as your jurisdiction. Falls Church City is a 2.3 square mile jurisdiction that does not include the greater mailing area of Falls Church. You can validate your jurisdiction by visiting the link below. You cannot submit a registration through this site for another jurisdiction! Any such registration attempts will be discarded. For example, an address in Pimitt Hills will say Falls Church for the City mailing address, however all addresses in Pimitt Hills are actually under the jurisdiction of Fairfax County.
Enter your address and click Find. When the results are provided click/expand "Show Mailing Industry Details." This option will show your "County" where your vehicle should be registered. If it says, "City of Falls Church," continue with this form.
Use this form to register your owned or leased vehicle for personal property tax and to receive a City of Falls Church Vehicle Decal. After submission a Temporary Decal will be mailed to you in 3-5 days and MUST be displayed immediately to avoid citation until the Yearly Decal is received. Failure to display a decal within 60 days of the vehicle entering the City may result in citation by enforcement.
A Driver's License number is required. Only Virginia Driver's License Numbers are acceptable. Any other numbers provided cannot be used and will result in rejection of your application and non-compliance with City Ordinance. If you do not hold a Virginia Driver's License, you may apply in person at the Commissioner's Office.
To register a vehicle under a business, please type the business name.

Skip this section if the vehicle is not co-owned.
Is the vehicle leased?
Is owner of this vehicle an active duty Military Member or a spouse of an Active Duty Military Service member?
The SCRA states that an active duty servicemember here on military orders who maintains domicile in another state is exempt from personal property tax in the residing jurisdiction, regardless of whether a similar tax is paid within the state of domicile.
Enacted November 2009, the MSRRA states that a Military servicemember's spouse is exempted from personal property taxation provided their domicile is another state, both the servicemember and spouse claim the same state of domicile, the servicemember is here on assignment, and the spouse is here solely to reside with the servicemember.
To claim exemption from personal property tax the Commissioner requires proof of qualification. The military servicemembers's Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) is required in all circumstances. For the MSRRA, the spouse must provide proof of domicile in another state such as out of state driver's license, voter registration card, and income tax filings.
Use this tool to submit a Leave and Earning Statement (LES) and any other required documents. A copy of the military servicemember's LES is always required to qualify.
Enter the date the vehicle moved into the City of Falls Church. If applicable, the Commissioner's Office will validate this date with the prior tax jurisdiction and DMV records.
Virginia Code requires that a vehicle with more than 50% of the mileage, depreciation, expense pursuant to Section 179 of the IRS Code be reported as BUSINESS USE for purposes of the Personal Property Tax Relief Eligibility.
Please indicate if the vehicle is parked at an address other than the mailing address provided in your contact information.

This form is submitted to the City using SSL encryption. The City of Falls Church and its website host cannot guarantee the security of the "Receive Email Copy" feature below because emails are potentially unsecure. For this reason it is recommended that you leave this option unselected. Confirmation of registration is provided upon the processing of your application (via mail, 3-7 days after submission), therefore selection of this option is unnecessary. However, availability of this feature is required and the City cannot remove it from this form.
