Campbell County residents age 65 or over and certain disabled persons
may be eligible for relief of real estate tax depending upon their
annual income and assets. Applications for tax relief must be filed each
year. For further information please contact the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue.
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. These bills are automatically sent to the mortgage company. If
you have an escrow account, yet you receive the tax bill, forward the
bill to your mortgage company.
Real Estate tax bills are due December 5 of each calendar year.
Supplemental billings are due within 30 days of the bill date. Real
Estate Tax is delinquent the day after the due date. There is a penalty
required by the Virginia State Code for late payment of taxes. This
penalty is 10% or $10, whichever is greater, but not to exceed the
amount of the tax.
The Treasurer is also required by the Code to collect interest at an annual rate of 10% until payment in full is received.
