County Tax Deadline Draws Nears

Halifax County Treasurer Linda S. Foster reminds county residents that the deadline for payment of county real estate and personal property taxes is Monday, Dec. 7.

Postmarks dated Dec. 7 will be accepted without penalty and interest added on personal property taxes and the second installment of real estate taxes, Foster said. Under state law, a 10 percent penalty per year and a 10 percent per annum interest rate will be added to unpaid taxes as of Dec. 8, she added.

Foster said any taxpayer who did not receive a bill on personal property taxes assessed Jan. 1, should call the county treasurer’s office at 476-3318. Any new landowners after January 1 also should call if they did not receive a bill, Foster added. Any questions on assessment value or change of address should contact the commissioner of revenue’s office at 476-3314.

Taxpayers should mail a check or money order with payment coupon to Halifax County Treasurer, P.O. Box 825, Halifax, Va. 24558.

Payments also may be made in person between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the county treasurer’s office at the Mary Bethune Office Complex, 1030 Cowford Road, Halifax.
