Most University housing is located in Albemarle County, the balance in Charlottesville City. Students residing in Copeley III, Ribble Dorm, Gwathmey, Mary Munford, Lewis, University Gardens, Whyburn Dorm, Wheedon Dorm, University Forum Apartments or in Charlottesville City proper are subject to Charlottesville City taxation. Students residing in any other University housing or in Albemarle County proper are subject to Albemarle County taxation. The tax applies irrespective of whether in-state or non-resident tuition is paid. Under specific circumstances, vehicles registered out of state may be exempt.
Personal property tax is used to fund services provided by local agencies and governments, not the University or the Commonwealth of Virginia. Payment of local property tax does not convert non-resident status to in-state status for purposes of tuition charges.
For additional information, please contact the Albemarle County Department of Finance (804) 296-5851 or the Charlottesville Commissioner of the Revenue (804) 970-3160.
