Important Message Regarding the Upcoming June 5, 2020 Tax deadline
Your payment of personal property and real estate taxes is essential for the local government to continue to operate and provide critical services to the public. However, if you or your business has experienced financial hardship due to the health and economic crisis directly related to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Treasurer will be accepting applications for payment arrangements to assist those affected. If your application is approved, then the Treasurer agrees to credit all payments that you are able to submit on or before August 5, 2020 to the tax principal without the assessment of late payment penalty or interest.
The elected post of Treasurer was created by the Virginia Constitution of 1870. As an elected official, the treasurer ensures that local funds will be collected, invested and spent by an officer who reports directly to the people.
