City vehicle window decals go on sale beginning May 1 at the Treasurer's Office. A temporary or permanent state registration or a pre-printed City decal application must be presented when buying the decal. All personal property taxes must be paid before a decal may be purchased.
The cost of decals is $23 or $28 for a passenger vehicle; trucks over 10,000# GW are priced according to weight. To transfer a decal to another car, the registration for the new vehicle, along with the old decal (even if mutilated) must be presented. Transfers must be completed within 10 days after date of purchase.There is a $1 charge for a transfer decal.
If moving in to Petersburg from another Virginia jurisdiction, you may surrender your old decal and purchase a decal here for a pro-rated fee. City decal application forms are mailed in early May along with the personal property tax bill to all persons registered with the Commissioner of the Revenue.
