Town Tax Rates (effective July 1, 2019)

Real Estate:  17.5¢ per $100 assessed value

Statutory tax relief qualification criteria for low-income seniors and certain other individuals, as required or permitted by state code, have been revised to align with those of Pittsylvania County.  For detailed information concerning this, please look under the “Town Code” tab above (click “Ordinances” and then “Chapter 3:  Taxation” to read the applicable ordinance sections). 


Note:  the ordinance book is being updated to remove setting of rates and fees by section, and to replace those with references to one master list of all applicable rates and fees.  This change is to streamline the process, and the new master list will be published on this page in the near future.
