West Virginia Bill to Limit Property Taxes Paid on Antique Motor Vehicles

A bill (H.B. 4068) has been introduced in the West Virginia State Legislature to provide owners of antique motor vehicles with a cap on property taxes paid on antique motor vehicles.  The bill will be considered in the House Roads and Transportation Committee on Wednesday, January 25, 2012.        


We Urge You to Contact the Roads and Transportation Committee Members (List Attached) Immediately To Request Their Support for H.B. 4068


  • West Virginia law defines an "Antique motor vehicle" to mean any motor vehicle which is more than twenty-five years old and is owned solely as a collector's item.


  • H.B. 4068 would assess antique motor vehicles for property taxes at their salvage value.  That value could not exceed $500.  At the most costly rate in West Virginia (approximately 3%), the actual property tax paid by antique motor vehicle owners at the maximum salvage value would be only about $15 per year.   


DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the West Virginia House Roads and Transportation Committee immediately to request their support of H.B. 4068.  Please     e-mail a copy of your letter to stevem@sema.org.  Thank you for your assistance.
