More Information:


The City of Alexandria has mailed bills for the first half 2013 real estate tax and refuse fee to all property owners and/or mortgage companies. Although the residential refuse fee was decreased to $328 in the FY 2014 Approved Budget, the FY 2013 fee of $336 remains in effect for the first half 2013 real estate tax billing, so a refuse fee of $168 will be shown on the bills for properties subject to the fee.

First half real estate tax and refuse fee payments are due Monday, June 17. In accordance with City Code, late payment penalty and interest will be assessed on all real estate taxes and refuse fees that are not paid or postmarked by the due date. The late payment penalty is 10 percent of the combined total for the tax and refuse fee, or $10, whichever is greater. Interest accrues at an annual rate of 10 percent for the first year and five percent for each year thereafter, beginning June 18, 2013, and continuing until the entire outstanding balance is paid.

The Code of Virginia does not allow for waiver of tax, penalty, or interest due to inability to pay or failure to receive a tax bill. Property owners who do not receive a real estate tax bill in the mail by June 1 and do not have their real estate taxes paid by their mortgage companies should contact the City’s Treasury Division at payments@alexandriava.gov, or call 703.746.3902, Option 8, to request a bill. Property owners who have had a change of mailing address but did not previously report this change to the City should contact the Department of Real Estate Assessments at realestate@alexandriava.gov, or call 703.746.4646, to ensure that future bills and correspondence are mailed to the correct address.

Additional information on real estate taxes is available on the Finance Department website at alexandriava.gov/RealEstateTax. Information on real estate assessments, appeals, or updating the property owner’s mailing address is available from the Department of Real Estate Assessments at alexandriava.gov/RealEstate.
