1st Half 2008 Personal Property & Real Estate Tax Deadline

Due Date: Thursday, June 5, 2008

  • Date: 06/05/2008
  • Location: Charlottesville, Virginia

1st Half 2008 Personal Property & Real Estate Tax Deadline

Personal property and real estate tax payments not received or post marked by the deadline are assessed with a penalty of 10% of the total tax amount assessed (before personal property tax relief) on the first day after the deadline.  Taxes remaining unpaid on the first day of the month following the deadline accrue interest on a monthly basis at a rate of 10% per annum.

Penalty and interest cannot be waived because the taxpayer did not know the deadline or misread the deadline on the tax bill (1987-99 Report of the Atty. Gen. 559, August 22, 1988); because the taxpayer did not receive a bill (1970-71 Report of the Atty. Gen. 373, March 31, 1971); because the bill was mailed to the wrong address (1981-82 Report of the Atty. Gen. 393, March 25, 1982); because the bill was incorrect (1986-87 Report of the Atty. Gen. 321, July 31, 1986); or because the taxpayer received erroneous information from City staff, whether in person or over the phone (1981-82 Report of the Atty. Gen. 350, May 13, 1982).

If you are unable to pay your taxes in full by the specified deadline due to financial difficulties, you may make payment arrangements with the Treasurer's Office.  Please contact the Treasurer's Office at (434) 970-3146 for further information about setting up a payment arrangement.  Please note that making a payment arrangement does not relieve the penalty for late payment, nor does it stop the accrual of interest on the account in question.

The City Treasurer's office is committed to aggressively pursuing the collection of delinquent taxes.  Unpaid taxes for which no alternative arrangements have been made or for which arrangements have been made but not met will be subject to collection procedures including, but not limited to, tax liens, DMV vehicle registration withholding and the automatic withholding of state income tax refunds or lottery winnings.

Tax payments may be mailed to:

City of Charlottesville Treasurer's Office
P.O. Box 9048
Charlottesville, VA  22906-9048
