Yes. Every vehicle garaged in Loudoun County must be registered with the Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue. This can be done in person or online.

If you have moved your vehicle from another Virginia jurisdiction, you'll need to supply a copy of your most recent paid vehicle personal property tax receipt or a copy of your most recent certified vehicle personal property tax filing.
As of January 1, 2022, Loudoun County will be administering the personal property tax and vehicle license fee for owners of motor vehicles in the incorporated towns of Hamilton, Leesburg, Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville, and Round Hill. Please contact the DMV, and the Commissioner of the Revenue with any changes. Please note: Vehicles located outside of incorporated Towns are charged a vehicle license fee by the county.

If you do not file, a 10% late filing penalty will be added to your annual tax each year until a filing occurs.
After a vehicle's initial registration, the Commissioner's Office annually mails vehicle personal property filing notices, allowing residents to report corrections, address changes, the sale or disposal of vehicles, or unusually high mileage since these factors may affect the property's valuation or the number of months a vehicle is taxed in the county. Vehicle personal property tax information may be filed online at www.loudoun.gov/efile. The Commissioner requests that all changes be submitted by February 1 to assist in establishing accurate assessments for each tax year. For tax year 2022, the filing deadline has been extended to February 15.
