Business personal property tax filing requirements also changed in 2015 for home based businesses. Home based businesses are now exempt from the annual equipment filing requirement for personal effects such as cell phones, tablets, personal computers and peripherals such as printers. These items should not be included in the online filings or the supporting asset lists. Those businesses required to register with the Commissioner of the Revenue should file within 30 days of commencing operations. Forms and step-by-step instructions are available on the Starting a Business in Loudoun County webpage.
Information is maintained by the Commissioner of the Revenue for the purposes of tax administration and most of that information is protected from disclosure by law. The Code of Virginia, § 58.1-3 is very specific with regard to privacy of tax information and only allows local tax officials to disclose "whether a person, firm or corporation is licensed to do business in that locality."
Due to the volume of requests for information maintained by the Commissioner of the Revenue and the Commissioner's authority under Virginia Code, the Commissioner has available a list of persons, firms and corporations licensed to do business in Loudoun County. This list contains only the owner name of all currently licensed businesses. This list is available here.
A list of businesses whose owners have opted to have their information released is available upon request. If you would like a copy of the list, please contact the Business Tax Division in the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 703-777-0260.
You should be aware that the Commissioner of the Revenue's office licenses building trades contractors with projects in Loudoun County, regardless of where the business is physically located.

You may wish to contact each of these incorporated towns to obtain information regarding businesses that are licensed and physically located within each town's respective corporate limits.
