URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Virginia Bill to Benefit Vehicle Restoration Projects Approved by House; Moves to Senate Committee
Legislation (H.B. 1990) to totally exempt from the license tax ALL vehicles and parts cars stored on private property for the purpose of restoration or repair was approved by the full Virginia House of Delegates. The license tax is applied to vehicles that do not display current license plates. Under the bill, vehicles stored within a structure would remain exempt from the tax. The bill will next be considered by the Virginia Senate Transportation Committee. We encourage your support.
We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Senate Transportation Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Their Support for H.B. 1990
Under current law, all vehicles, even those 25 years old and older are subject to the license tax. Under H.B. 1990, the exemption for all cars, regardless of age that are undergoing restoration (for as long a time period as the restoration work requires) represents a new benefit to car owners.
H.B. 1990 demonstrates a real effort by legislators and hobbyists to enact reasonable and fair compromise legislation.
Please contact members of the Virginia Senate Transportation Committee immediately to request their support for H.B. 1990
