Several have contested it in Arlington. It might be worth pinging Campbell who fought the law successfully and Klapmust who investigated it recently and I believe wound up punting on the whole thing. Campbell got a certified appraisal on his to facilitate the devaluation.

Ha, didn't know that. Still don't think I could live on base...I hate mowing grass, much less with a pressed polo on while doing it! Who knows though, if I PCA next summer down there, I may well eat crow.

Shit, I don't mow my lawn, and I certainly don't wear a polo, NOR do I shave on the weekends (gasp!!!). I'm a field grade living in company grade housing not leading by example, and no one gives a shite. I was boozing it up on Sunday with 4 days of facial hair, shorts, and flip flops.

IMO all tax should be waiver for active duty and the first 12 months they are out, along with two years worth of community college for their kids...just my opinion of course.

The personal property tax is waived for all active military residing in taxable areas within VA; on base, or not. The GI Bill covers the rest- a terrific deal...

Yes but IMO it's not enough, especially the VA benefits...I don't want to come off as a bleeding Liberal Democrat, we should take care of our own.

They teach us to capitalize proper nouns like Marines for one...

That, and little things like Pusan, Inchon, Chosin, I Corps, 'here you guys breach the defenses while we drive around the desert (aka DS/DS), Anbar, Helmand...

And perhaps the most unarguable perspective-the uniforms look better.

As if you even liked being in the army!

Aah yes, that was it. Proper capitalization is for people with too much spare time. The GI Bill rocks!

If you move to a nosey neighborhood you could have annoying neighbors that'll turn you in if they notice you haven't tagged your vehicle in Virginia. Happens a lot so be aware.

I was thinking it might make sense to take these trucks to a Carmax to get a trade-in appraisal for fighting this back a bit. The jump in appraised value this year is pretty ridiculous. Problem is they say their only assessing on 70% of the NADA appraised value. My 97 was assessed on $30k. Probably gonna be tough to get it significantly below that.

The real issue I have with the assessment of values for a vehicle is that there is no single authority for vehicle values. I don't mean simply a "Kelley Blue Book" or "NADA" book value. What I'm referring to is the fact that the amount the state taxes, the county taxes, the insurance companies value at a total loss, etc. all draw from different valuations of the vehicle.

I don't particularly mind that the values of the vehicle are "subjective". However, what I do mind is that there is a no single agree-upon value. If I pay taxes on a $30k vehicle, I want my insurance company to guarantee a $30k total loss value, which they do not.

Good question, Russ! I don't remember exactly but will check.

I'm not even sure if they charged me at the 4.57% rate or the 0.01% rate for Antiques.

Either way I know I paid more than $30 for my fairfax county registration.

City of Richmond is still fair, was cheap. My 2011 FJ was by far more expensive.
