Real Estate Taxes

Real estate taxes are generally prorated when real estate is sold, but this is a matter that is settled between the purchaser and the seller. Real estate is assigned in the name of the owner as of January 1 of each year. If property is purchased after January 1, the real estate book will not reflect the new owner’s name until the following year.

Bills are not sent to mortgage companies. If a mortgage company is responsible for your payment, you should forward this bill to them for payment.

Tax Relief for the Elderly and Disabled

If you are 65 or older or permanently disabled and meet the financial criteria established by our local ordinance, you may be eligible for a real estate exemption. Applications must be made every year by April 1. If you qualify, you can apply now for next year. For further information contact the Commissioner of the Revenue at 540-245-5647 or visit the website for details.

Delinquent Taxes

The bill you receive may not reflect the total delinquent tax amount currently due. To find out whether you have delinquent taxes owed, you may access your records online at tax.co.augusta.va.us under ‘Inquiry Options’ on the right-side menu or call 540-245-5660.

Payment plans are available and we encourage you to talk with us to make arrangements before the delinquent taxes go into collection efforts, including DMV stops or bank, wage and/or tax refund liens. Call the number above to see if collection measures have been placed against you.

If you have any questions, visit www.co.augusta.va.us/government/treasurer for more information or call the Treasurer’s office at 540-245-5660.
