County Tax Bills are Due Friday, December 5th
11/21/2014

Albemarle County tax bills for personal property and real estate are due Friday December 5, 2014. If you have any questions or have not received your Personal Property or Real Property tax bill(s), or if you have a vehicle, trailer, boat or airplane located in Albemarle County that is not listed on your bill please contact the Finance Department at (434) 296-5851 or albemarlecountyfinance@albemarle.org before the deadline.

To avoid incurring a 10% late payment penalty, payments must be either postmarked by December 5 or delivered in person to the Finance Office before 5:00 p.m. on December 5th. Otherwise, late payment penalty is effective the following day (December 6th). An interest rate of 10% per annum also begins to accrue on January 1, 2015. As established by the Board of Supervisors during the most recent budget process, the tax rate for 2014 is $0.799 per hundred of assessed value for real estate, and $4.28 per hundred for personal property.
