Businesses that receive a bill based on a statutory assessment should complete the 2012 Business Personal Property Tax Return and provide an itemized asset listing to receive an accurate bill.  Businesses that have relocated within the City but have not previously reported this change will be required to complete an interdepartmental form for the new location.  Businesses that have moved out of the City or ceased doing business in the City must complete the cessation of business form for the applicable calendar year.  All of the forms listed above can be found on the City’s website at alexandriava.gov/BusinessTax.

Business Personal Property Tax payments are due Friday, October 5, 2012.  Any business owner wishing to pay by mail should write the account number on a check or money order and send it with the bill stub to City of Alexandria Business Personal Property, P.O.

Late payment penalties and interest will be assessed on all business personal property tax accounts that are not paid by the due date.  The late payment penalty is ten percent of the tax due or $10, whichever is greater.  Interest accrues at an annual rate of ten percent for the first year and five percent for each year thereafter.
