Real Estate Taxes

The Code of Virginia, 1950, as amended, provides for the assessment and collection of real estate taxes based on fair market value established by the governing body each year.  Bills are mailed twice a year to the property owner on record as of January 1, with payment due to the county on or by May 31 and October 31 of each year.  

A late payment penalty of 10% is added on June 1 and November 1, respectively. Interest will also begin accruing beginning June 1 and November 1, respectively.  Any payment postmarked on or before the May 31 or October 31 deadline will be accepted without penalty.  

Failure to receive a tax bill will not relieve the penalty and interest charge that will be applied to all past due bills.  If there is a change of ownership, billing address or any other change pertaining to your taxes, please notify the Treasurer's Office and/or the Commissioner of the Revenue.

Mortgage Company requests have been sent to them (if noted on your tax ticket), otherwise the taxpayer has the responsibility to forward the bill to them.

Wise County currently reassesses real estate every 6 years.  The last reassessment is effective as of January 1, 2014.

The real estate tax rate is set in the spring, during budget deliberations by the Board of Supervisors.  For 2016, the rate is $0.60 per $100 of assessed value.
