Personal Property Tax Relief (PPTR)

This tax relief is reflected on your vehicle personal property tax bill as a reduction in the amount due attributable to the portion of the tax that the Commonwealth will pay.  For qualified vehicles, the bill is reduced by that year’s tax relief percentage but only on the first $20,000 of assessed value.
