James City County Personal Property and Real Estate Taxes Due Dec. 5

(James City County)

JAMES CITY COUNTY — James City County personal property and real estate tax bills have been mailed and are due Monday, Dec. 5, the county said.

Real estate tax invoices have been mailed to all real estate owners. If an escrow is established for a property, residents are asked to check the monthly mortgage statement to ensure funds are in escrow.

The Board of Supervisors said it is sensitive to rising costs and notes it took two actions to provide tax relief:

  1. It reduced the real estate tax rate from $0.84 to $0.83/per $100 on assessed values; a $1,100,000 saving to taxpayers beginning with bills due in December 2022.
  2. Adopted an assessment ratio of 75% of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) values for motor vehicles; a $9,000,000 savings to taxpayers beginning with bills due in June 2022.

Those who have not received their tax bill should call the Treasurer’s Office at 757-253-6705. Taxes are still due even if no bill was received.
