Title 24. Transportation And Motor Vehicles
Agency 20. Department Of Motor Vehicles
Chapter 100. Virginia Motor Vehicle Rental Taxes and Fees Rules and Regulations

24VAC20-100-420. Interest and penalties.

Interest of 1-1/2% per month or fraction of a month will be added to any rental taxes and fees not paid when due and to any penalties added to such taxes and fees, until such overdue taxes and fees and penalties have been paid in full. Penalties may be imposed in the following situations:

1. Rentors who fail to make a return and pay the rental taxes and fees when due are subject to a penalty of 10% or $10, whichever is greater, of the taxes and fees due. Returns filed late with no rental taxes or fees due will be subject to the minimum penalty of $10; and

2. Rentors who are found to have filed a false or fraudulent return, or to have willfully failed to file any return, with intent to defraud the state of any rental taxes or fees due under the Motor Vehicle Sales and Use Tax Act, are subject to a penalty of 50% of the amount of the proper rental taxes and fees due. It is prima facie evidence of intent to defraud the state for a rentor to understate by 50% or more the gross proceeds from rentals in this state.
