I am a new resident to Gloucester County. How do I register with the county?

The Commissioner of the Revenue welcomes you to Gloucester County. All vehicles should be registered with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) prior to notifying us. Boats need to be registered with Game and Inland Fisheries (GIF). 


You may file a return anytime after you move to Gloucester County; however, a return is required by March 1st of the first year you were a resident on January 1st. Gloucester County does not prorate; therefore, you will be taxed for the entire year on items that you own January 1st.
