Default Fairfax (City) Sales Tax on Cars

I have a dealer telling me there's a 0.17% additional sales tax on cars in Fairfax City. So instead of the 3% Motor Vehicles Sales & Use tax, they're saying the tax will be 3.17%. Granted, it's a very small amount to quibble about, but I don't like being nickel-and-dimed to death, and I can't find any reference to this tax anywhere online. Can someone confirm the existence of this tax and maybe provide a link?

Thanks!

As it turns out, it is 0.2% they were talking about, not 0.17%, and it's the Fairfax City Business License Tax. It was very disingenuous of them to try to sneak this by me as a sales tax. It is part of their cost of doing business and is not anything that I have ever before seen passed along to the consumer (at least not as a line item on the final invoice).
