High Mileage

All vehicle mileage must be filed in the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office annually by the February 15th.  If you do not meet the deadline for the current year, you may file for the following tax year.

High Mileage Application

Please bring into our office your most current unaltered original inspection slip before February 15th, to receive this deduction.  If the inspection slip does not show the exact miles as on the vehicle, you must bring in another document indicating the mileage on the vehicle.  Other documents could include oil change records, tire purchase/rotation records, or services maintenance records from an authorized dealer.

The National Automotive Dealers Association Guide (N.A.D.A.) - January Issue has a high mileage table in front of the book that determines the deduction amount to be subtracted from your value.  Please note that deductions for high mileage do not exceed 40% of trade-in value.

The following chart reflects the high mileage breakdown for 2020:

Vehicle Year          2020 Minimum Mileage  Requirement
2019 20,001
