What is the Personal Property Tax Relief Act?

The Personal Property Tax Relief Act of 1998 provides tax relief for passenger cars, motorcycles, and pickup or panel trucks having a registered gross weight of less than 7,501 pounds. To qualify, a vehicle must be owned by an individual or leased by an individual under a contract requiring the individual to pay the personal property tax; AND, be used 50% or less for business purposes.

Motor homes, trailers and farm use vehicles do not qualify for tax relief.

  2. Is more than 50% of the depreciation associated with the vehicle deducted as a business expense for Federal Income Tax purposes?

High Mileage Adjustment

You may have a vehicle that could qualify for a High Mileage Adjustment. The vehicle must be valued through the NADA Price Guide. If you believe your vehicle has high mileage, you must submit third-party documentation that clearly shows the mileage as of January 1 (e.g., state inspection receipt or service center repair receipt). This documentation needs to be legible in order for us to accept it and must be received by the Commissioner of the Revenue by February 15. You must file every year for this deduction.
