Real Estate Tax

All real property in Page County is subject to taxation, except that which is specifically exempt. The Commissioner of Revenue assesses property as of January 1 of each year. The real estate tax rate is set annually by the Page County Board of Supervisors. Currently, the Real Estate tax rate is $0.73 per $100 of the assessed value. Payment is made to the Treasurers Office in 2 installments due June 5 and December 5.

Under Virginia law, failure to receive a tax bill will not relieve the penalty and interest charge that must be applied to all past due bills. The post-mark applied by the U. S. Postal Service to envelopes containing payment is used to determine timeliness for mailed payment.

When You Purchase or Sell Real Property

Under Virginia law, real property is assessed for the entire year in the name of the owner as of January 1 of the year. The purchaser at a sale is required to see that the proceeds from the sale are applied at settlement to any taxes and levies assessed on the real estate. The liability is prorated between the buyer and the seller but the lien, which arises from delinquency attaches to the land.

If you buy property, your settlement attorney must ascertain all taxes due and prorate them for payment at settlement. If you have sold the property referred on the tax bill and another person has assumed responsibility for payment, please forward the bill promptly to that person or return it to the Treasurers Office with information as to the new owner. A delay on your part in this regard may require the new owner to pay a penalty and interest on a late payment.
