Alexandria, VA – May 18, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The City of Alexandria has mailed bills for the first half 2015 real estate tax and refuse fee to all property owners and/or mortgage companies. The 2015 real estate tax rate is $1.043 per $100 of assessed value.
First half real estate tax and refuse fee payments are due Monday, June 15. In accordance with City Code, late payment penalty and interest will be assessed on all real estate taxes and refuse fees that are not paid or postmarked by the due date. The late payment penalty is 10 percent of the combined total of the tax and refuse fee, or $10, whichever is greater. Interest accrues at an annual rate of 10 percent for the first year and five percent for each year thereafter, beginning June 16, 2015, and continues until the outstanding balance is paid.
The Code of Virginia does not allow for waiver of tax, penalty, or interest due to inability to pay or failure to receive a tax bill. Property owners who do not receive a real estate tax bill in the mail by June 1 and do not have their real estate taxes paid by their mortgage companies should contact the City’s Treasury Division at payments (at) alexandriava (dot) gov, or call 703.746.3902, Option 8, to request a bill.
