That should be the "Wheel Tax" which is levied in many, but not all, Counties. It is part of the Registration Fees each year. Take a copy of your VA Decision Letter (and probably a DD 214 also) to the County Clerk for your next Registration. If applicable, it should save you some money.
Each County has a period where Tax Appraisals can be contested. Contact the Tax Assessor in that County and find out what the process is and when. You too late for 2020 but you can file the written contested appraisal application now.

There is no Statute mandating Probate of every Decedent's Estate. Many, many Next Of Kin make this mistake. If there are no assets to distribute, there is no purpose for a Probate. Also land rarely goes through an Estate. If something happens to go to you, worry about any possible lien...Read more »

If there is a Deed of Trust on the Property, then there is probably a due on sale clause if the lender does not give permission.

Your business plan will require alot of work, and will incur significant risks. Do not buy any mobile home that does not have a certificate of title that goes with the serial number on the home. Then you will need a financing statement and note for each sale. Then you must record the lien...Read more »
I am an employed physician of a large health system in NE TN. Because of financial losses they are having due to Covid-19, they have mandated a 20% pay cut for all physicians for a 60-day period. IN ADDITION, they are cancelling the 401k match for the entire 2020 FY (July 2019 to July 2020), which... Read more »
Before I answer this question please allow me to sit the stage: Your employer is struggling to stay on top of the waves during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression--which started in October 1929 and lasted for most of the ensuing decade. IMO, you and all other employees should be...Read more »
I gave her $1,000 for my tax bill & she sent me some confirmation email that my tax bill was paid through the IRS Direct Pay site. However, when I filed my taxes this year, they took my refund claiming that I never paid my taxes! When I called the IRS with the confirmation email I received from... Read more »
I would continue to try and resolve the matter with the preparer. It may have been a clerical error or simple omission. If they can't or won't fix it you should file a police report, send form 3949-A to the IRS (link below), and review them on social media sites. The question is was this...Read more »

In fairness it should likely be split 50/50. That would be marital property subject to equitable distribution in the divorce. You may want to consider consulting with an attorney regarding this issue and the pending divorce. Good luck.

That depends on the value of the business versus any exemption that might apply. You need to file your taxes based on what you elected at the time of formation or prior to...Read more »
No but it helps. There may be other liens, etc. A Fed Tax Lien needs to be released of record, both in the County of recording, and possibly other Counties. The Taxpayer may still have a Notice of Deficiency on him, or some other tax problem. A title search is necessary, and if there is a...Read more »
I would contact the Trustee or the County Tax Attorney, and ask for the money. They will probably claim the proceeds have already been spoken for. But otherwise you must sue the County for the surplus, and possibly the official that conducted the Sale for breach of fiduciary duty.
