The Treasurer is an elected official directly responsible to the citizens of the locality for the receipt and collection of revenue, the safekeeping and investment of revenue and accounting for the disbursement of revenue. The Treasurer is also responsible for the collection of state funds under the Code of Virginia.

The Board of Supervisors of Nottoway County sets the local personal property and real estate tax rates. The rates are determined when the county is preparing the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Personal property is assessed as of January 1 each year by the Commissioner of the Revenue. The tax is based on a pricing guide or a percent of the original total. The assessment is based on vehicles in the taxpayer’s possession and normally garaged, parked or stored in the County on January l.

The Code of Virginia provides for the assessment of real estate taxes based on fair market value as established by the governing body. All real estate is subject to taxation unless it is specifically exempt.

Real property is assessed as of January 1 each year by the Commissioner of the Revenue. Real estate tax is due on December 5. A late payment penalty of 10% is added on December 6; interest is added at the rate of 10% per year beginning January 1. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you of the obligation of paying your tax plus any penalty or interest that may accrue. Any change in ownership, billing address, etc., should be reported to the Treasurer’s Office. We will forward tax bills to a mortgage company if requested by the company in writing at least 60 days before payment is due.


Land Use Assessment Program

The Land Use Assessment Program for tracts of 5 acres or more is designed to preserve farmland as well as wooded and horticultural acres in the county. Tax assessments are generally lower than those at fair market value. The program is a deferral of taxes not a total abatement. More information on this program can be obtained from the Commissioner of the Revenue.


Personal Property Tax

Personal property tax is levied as of January 1 each year on the following kinds of personal property: autos, trucks, motor homes, mobile homes, motorcycles, trailers, campers, boats, airplanes and business personal property. The tax is assessed by the Commissioner of the Revenue and paid to the Treasurer’s Office and is due by December 5 to avoid 10% penalty and interest.

  • Military: Under the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act, non-Virginia resident military personnel are exempt from personal property taxes if the personal property is titled solely in the name of the service person. Personal property registered jointly with a non-military member is taxable to the jurisdiction.
  • Personal Property Tax Return: Every resident of Nottoway County as of January 1 of the tax year must file personal property with the Commissioner of the Revenue by May 1. This must be filed every year. Failure to list personal property with the Commissioner of Revenue results in a 10% late filing penalty being added. When assessed, the penalty becomes part of the tax. Forms can be found in back of the Virginia State Income Tax booklet or may be obtained from the Commissioner of the Revenue.
