Reassessment notices will be mailed Oct. 12
The County will be mailing reassessment notices on Oct. 12 to all owners of business, residential and commercial real estate.
The reassessment notices are not tax bills but statements of reassessed value showing the current fair market value for property and improvements. An increase or decrease in assessed value does not necessarily mean that the amount owed in real estate taxes will change.
A video explaining the County's reassessment process may be viewed by clicking here. The video also airs on Channel 190 available to Comcast cable subscribers in the county. The video plays weekdays at 4 p.m. and weekends at 7 p.m.
Current real estate assessed values and other property details are available on the County's real estate information site.
The County hired Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group Ltd., to conduct its 2011 reassessment. Virginia state law requires all real property to be assessed at fair market value and real estate taxes be levied fairly and equitably. The new property assessments will be incorporated into real estate tax bills in 2011.
Look forward to more information coming about real estate reassessment on Oct. 12 at this web address: reassessment.montva.com.
The Reassessment Office may be contacted Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 381-6800. The office is located at the Government Center, 755 Roanoke St., Christiansburg. Parking is available at Imperial and Reading.
