Amelia County Vehicle Decal Information

In 2007, the Amelia County Board of Supervisors, in order to save County residents time and transportation costs, elected to allow Amelia residents to purchase “permanent vehicle decals”. Consequently, the last time our citizens had to stand in line to purchase a decal for their car, motorcycle, trailer or truck was April 15, 2007. 
Please note that Amelia County still requires its citizens to display a decal on each vehicle owned in the County as of January 1 with a valid State license plate.  New residents can purchase decals at the Treasurer’s Office within 30 days of becoming a resident of Amelia. After the initial purchase, a license tax will be billed on their personal property bill.

Since 2007 a citizen of Amelia has the following options:

 1. To purchase a decal for a new car

 2. To purchase a duplicate (transfer) decal if replacing a previously owned car/windshield

Additionally, as a result of this change, the County of Amelia instead of an “annual decal” fee now has a license tax on your annual personal property bill. This tax is based upon each vehicle, trailer, or motorcycle that has a valid state license plate as of January 1 for the billing year. Should a car that receives this tax need a decal during the year, it can be obtained for free after the license tax is paid.
