County Tax Bills in the Mail
5/3/2010

Albemarle County tax bills for personal property and real estate are in the mail to county residents. The county is sending about 69,600 personal property tax bills and 42,000 real estate bills. Payment is due June 5th, 2010. The real estate bills reflect the tax rate of $0.742 per $100 of assessed value as established by the Board of Supervisors during the most recent budget process, resulting in a lower tax bill for the average county property owner. 

Albemarle provides a Tax Relief program for residents who are 65 years of age or older and/or permanently and totally disabled.  The annual income limitation is $69,452.  The net worth limitation is $200,000, excluding the value of the home and up to 10 acres of land upon which it sits.  Renewal applications must be filed by April 1st of the tax year for which relief is requested.  New applicants must file before November 1st of the tax year for which relief is requested.  For further information, please contact the Finance Department at (434) 296-5851, extensions 3120 or 3442. 

The deadline for filing all land use applications is November 2nd, preceding the tax year for which such taxation is sought.  In addition to filing new applications for parcels qualifying for the first time, a land use application shall also be submitted whenever the use or acreage of such land previously approved changes.  Failure to submit application by the specified deadline shall disqualify the entire parcel for land use taxation.  For further information about land use taxation, contact the real estate office at (434) 296-5856.

Finance officials remind residents that they have a variety of options for paying their county tax bills - Customers at our McIntire Road offices can use MasterCard and Visa for the payment of taxes.  There is a 3% convenience fee passed along by the county for each transaction.
