I live within the town limits of Stephens City/Middletown-do I need a decal?
Yes, you need to purchase a decal from your town office. However, you still need to file your vehicle with Frederick County. You will not be charged a vehicle license fee by Frederick County.
If I trade a vehicle during the year, will I be able to transfer the license fee?
No, under the current ordinance, license fees are not transferable. All vehicles, not otherwise exempted, are charged a license fee.
Are there exemptions for the vehicle license fee?
Yes, there are several exemptions from the vehicle license fee. Qualified volunteer fire/rescue personnel, qualified POW, and qualified disabled veterans may be exempt on qualified vehicles only. Qualified National Guard plated vehicles also may have a reduced fee. Please contact the Treasurer or Commissioner for more information.
