GLOUCESTER — Gloucester County’s Commissioner of the Revenue, JoAnne Harris, has received a Master Commissioner of the Revenue designation from the Commissioners of the Revenue Association (CORA) of Virginia.

“I am very excited to announce this special designation of Master Commissioner of Revenue to the constituents I serve in Gloucester County,” said Harris. “In all my years serving the great people of Gloucester County, I have always made the citizens my top priority in making sure that they receive the best customer service possible. I take my responsibilities as Commissioner very seriously. I will continue to train and educate myself as well as my staff to maintain the professionalism the citizens of Gloucester deserve.”

The new Master Commissioner designation was awarded to Harris after she demonstrated advanced knowledge, competency, and professional accomplishments as well as meeting the program’s criteria required to qualify for the special designation.

Part of that criteria includes continuing education through the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, attending regional and state education seminars and meetings, maintaining policies set forth in the Standards of Accountability, and adherence to and practice of the Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct of the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO).

Harris has worked in the Commissioners office for over 27 years and has worked for Gloucester County for nearly 35 years. She previously served as Deputy Commissioner of the Revenue before she became the Commissioner and took office just over two years ago.

The designation program requires Harris to complete at least one core or elective course each year moving forward so that she may maintain her certification.
