Nottoway County collects revenue in a variety of ways. Real estate and personal property constitute the major source of taxable revenue. Responsibility of assessing taxable real estate and personal property is held by the Commissioner of the Revenue.

The Commissioner, with assistance of a periodic countywide property re-assessment, building permit information, and Department of Motor Vehicle records, fixes fair market value on which the tax rate is attached. The tax rate is set by the Board of Supervisors on an annual basis.

The Nottoway County Commissioner of the Revenue assesses the taxes and the Treasurer’s office mails out the bills and collects the money due. Any discrepancies found on the bill should be addressed to the Commissioner of the Revenue. The Treasurer’s office does not have the authority to make any changes.

Nottoway County does a reassessment every six years by an independent land assessing contractor. The Commissioner of the Revenue does not have the authority to change what is assessed by the re-assessment company. The taxpayer is given opportunities to discuss the value with the re-assessment company and the Board of Equalization if they feel the value is unfair. The commissioner of the Revenue is responsible to assess value of new homes and changes in existing homes in between re-assessment years.

Personal property is based on the location of the property on January 1st of the taxable year. Vehicle value is based on the “clean loan” value as listed in pricing guides such as J.D. Power formerly known as NADA.

Tangible personal property used in a trade or a business (furniture, fixtures, computers, machinery & tools) is also valued by the Commissioner’s office. The office uses a depreciating scale to determine value from one year to the next.

Same as for the real estate exemption, the veteran must have the 100% service-connected AND permanent AND total. The vehicle must be in the Veteran’s name OR as long as the vehicle is being used for the benefit of the Veteran. This exemption is just for the Veteran it does not pass to a surviving spouse.
