Chatham Cracks Down on Delinquent Property Taxes Through DMV

Chatham, VA - Starting next month, Chatham residents may run into some trouble at the DMV if they haven't paid their personal property taxes.

Town officials hope to institute DMV stops that would alert the department commissioner if someone has not paid taxes on their vehicle.

The DMV would then notify Chatham's treasurer before allowing the tag to be renewed.
Hammell says this method has been used successfully in the county for a while, but it's new for the town.
