Real estate valuation (assessment) and the establishment of the tax rate are 2 separate functions.
Current Tax Rate
The tax rate per $100 of assessed value is $.79.
New Tax Rate
Every Spring, the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors will set a tax rate based on the funds required to provide government services. Those rates are applied to the real estate assessment to determine the real estate tax bill. The first half is due June 5th and the second half is due November 5th.
Discussions & Hearings
Prior to setting the tax rate, the Board of Supervisors will discuss the tax rate in an open meeting and hold a public hearing. The public hearing dates will be advertised in local newspapers and on the County website.
