When market values change, so does assessed value. For instance, if you added a garage to your home, the assessed value would increase. Property in poor repair decreases in value.
Virginia law requires property assessments to be based on fair market value. Estimating the market value of your property is a matter of determining the price a typical buyer would pay for it in its present condition. Some factors the Assessor considers are:
The Assessor does not create the value. People make value by their transactions in the marketplace. The Assessor has the legal responsibility to study transactions and appraise your property accordingly.
The amount a typical, well-informed purchaser would be willing to pay for a property. For a sale to represent market value, the seller must be willing (but not under pressure) to sell and the buyer must be willing (but not under any obligation) to buy. The property must be on the market for a reasonable length of time, the payment must be in cash or its equivalent, and the financing must be typical for that type of property.
Just as in many other fields, computers are useful in the assessment process. Assessors are trained to look for relationships between property characteristics and market value. By coding these characteristics and studying sale prices, assessors can estimate value by developing formulas and models. Computers are much faster and are capable of advanced analysis in this area.
Despite these capabilities, common sense and assessor judgment are always required to verify assessments. Assessors most familiar with the neighborhoods and properties review all assessments.

Mecklenburg County assesses taxes on a fiscal year rather than a calendar year; therefore the taxes you pay in June will be a different amount for December of the same year. Tax values change each fiscal year due to depreciation and reassessment. You can however, double the taxes you pay in December and have that payment applied to June which will satisfy the total taxes for the year. You will need to indicate in writing that you would like this done when making payment.
Please contact the Treasurer's Office at 434-738-6191, ext. 4251 as soon as possible. Failure to receive a bill does not prevent the Treasurer's Office from applying penalty and interest if payment is made after the due date.
