[ARCHIVED] Norfolk Treasurer & Commissioner of the Revenue Collaborate to Better Serve Residents
Offices work together to give residents extra time to prepare for personal property bills
NORFOLK, VA – The Offices of the Norfolk Treasurer and the Commissioner of the Revenue collaborated to mail personal property tax bills two weeks earlier than the 30-day state required distribution. This is the first time Norfolk has sent the bills early, allowing residents more time to prepare and pay the bill. Although the bills were mailed ahead of schedule, personal property tax is still due June 5th.
“We wanted to create a synergy between the two offices,” Commissioner of the Revenue Evans Poston said. “We knew that working together would benefit both the residents and the city.” Residents will start receiving their bills early next week, giving them nearly six weeks before the bill is due on June 5th. “Working together and getting the bills out early gives our residents six weeks to prepare,” said City Treasurer Daun Hester. “This gives them the opportunity to plan and even make partial payments each payday if that works best for them.”
The Commissioner of the Revenue’s office is also hosting two events to reach residents who think their vehicle assessment was too high, due to factors such as high mileage or wear and tear. Residents can appeal a vehicle assessment at two drive-through events:
1612 Willow Wood Drive
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Southside Aquatic Center
1750 Campostella Road
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Residents will receive adjusted assessments on-site, but their bill will remain due June 5th.
Residents can contact the Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue at (757) 664-7890 regarding their personal property assessment and can contact the Office of the Treasurer at (757) 664-7800 for questions regarding their personal property bills.
