Virginia officials citing cars registered out of state

FAIRFAX (AP) Officials in Fairfax County are cracking down on residents and business with cars registered out of state.

Officials have identified roughly 2,300 incorrectly registered vehicles and about $6,000 in unpaid vehicle property taxes since July 2015.

County Supervisor Jeff C. McKay initiated the enforcement effort last summer. He says he was prompted by complaints from residents in his district about cars with Maryland tags.

The enforcement effort is based on resident reports and traffic stops. Those cited with out-of-state registrations will be mailed a tax bill from the county Department of Tax Administration.

Residents who think that they were cited incorrectly can appeal to the county and then to circuit court.
