If you maintain an escrow account with a mortgage company, your mortgage company remits payment for your real estate taxes. All mortgage companies are required to request the real estate tax bills they wish to pay. These bills are automatically sent to the mortgage company. If you have an escrow account, yet you receive the tax bill, forward the bill to your mortgage company.
Real estate tax bills are due in two payments on June 5 and December 5 of each year. Supplemental billings are due within 30 days of the bill date. Real Estate Tax is delinquent the day after the due date. There is a penalty required by the Virginia State Code for late payment of taxes. This penalty is 10% or $10, whichever is greater, but not to exceed the amount of the tax.
The Treasurer is also required by the Code to collect interest at an annual rate of 10% until payment in full is received.
