Real Estate Tax

Real Estate Tax

Real Estate is taxes paid upon land and improvements.

All real estate is subject to taxation, except that specifically exempt by State Code.

The Real Estate Tax Rate is set annually by the Carroll County VA Board of Supervisors.

This tax is assessed by the
Commissioner of the Revenue's Office/ Real Estate Department 
and collected by the Office of the Treasurer.

The Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance on February 24, 2020, to collect Real Estate Tax twice a year with the First Half due on June 22, and the Second Half is due on December 5. 
Real Estate Tax is due semi-annually.
The current Real Estate Tax Rate is $0.64 per $100.00 Assessed Value

Escrow Accounts
If you maintain an escrow account with a mortgage company, your mortgage company remits payment for your real estate taxes.
All mortgage companies are required to request the real estate tax bills they wish to pay.  Mortgage Companies also have the ability to go online to obtain this information also. 

Penalty & Interest
First Half Real Estate Tax bills are due June 22   

Second Half Real Estate Tax tickets are due December 5  

Taxes are delinquent the day after the due date.

There is a 10% penalty required by the Virginia State Code for late payment of taxes.

The Treasurer is also required by the Code to collect interest at an annual rate of 10% until payment in full is received.
