Tax Relief and Tax Assistance Programs

The City of Alexandria has created several programs to ease the Real Estate and Personal Property tax burden on elderly, disabled and/or economically disadvantaged resident owners.


Real Estate Tax Relief for Elderly and Disabled Persons Program

Residents of the City of Alexandria who are 65 years of age or older or who are permanently and totally disabled as of November 15 may be eligible for the City's Real Estate Tax Relief or Deferral Program for Elderly or Disabled Persons.

Personal Property Tax Relief for Elderly and Disabled Persons Program

The City’s Personal Property Tax Relief Program for senior or permanently disabled, City residents allows eligible applicants to be exempt from payment of personal property tax on one vehicle.

Note:  A taxpayer may simultaneously apply for Real Estate Tax Relief and Personal Property Tax Relief using the combined application form. If more than one vehicle is owned, the City will apply the benefit to the vehicle with the highest assessment, subject to certain guidelines.

Real Property Tax Relief for Veterans with 100% Service-Connected Disability

The City offers a full real estate tax exemption to any veteran who has been rated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or its successor agency pursuant to federal law to have a 100 percent service-connected, permanent and total disability, and who occupies the real property as his/her primary place of residence.  The surviving spouse of a veteran eligible for the exemption may also qualify.

Other Assistance Available

For homeowners experiencing financial difficulties, the City continues to offer payment plans and the Automatic Bank Debit Program for real estate taxes.  These homeowners may also benefit from programs available through the Office of Housing and the Department of Human Services.
