Virginia Dealership Taxes & Fees

When making a vehicle purchase, you will typically see a disclaimer that “taxes, title and fees are extra”. This is done because the vehicle will be taxed in the state where it is registered, not the state where it is purchased. Because many states have different tax rates and other unique fees, it would be difficult to give an exact price until the buyer reveals which state they will title the vehicle. Most of Checkered Flag’s customers are from the Commonwealth of Virginia but we do have many from North Carolina, Maryland and other areas. To avoid confusion and not mislead, we have chosen to disclaim these fees. Below you will find the tax rates for Virginia. The dealer is required by the state to collect and remit the tax at the time of purchase. Please contact us at (757) 490-1111, if you need additional information.
