County to Collect Vehicle, Real Estate Taxes Next Week

Logo via Arlington CountyVehicle and real estate taxes are due to the Arlington County Treasurer’s Office next Monday, Oct. 5.

Residents can pay taxes online, by phone or by mail. Any mailed payment must be postmarked by Oct. 5 in order to avoid late fees or penalties.

“In the event that you are waiting for your account to be adjusted or closed, please be sure to avoid late payment penalty by paying the balance by Oct. 5,” the county said in a statement. “Any overpayment will be refunded once your account has been adjusted.”

The county charges a personal property tax on all vehicles regularly parked overnight in Arlington, including cars, motorcycles, buses and boats.

“All cities and counties in Virginia have a personal property tax which helps fund local government,” the county said.

The Treasurer’s Office collects real estate taxes in two installments — the first is collected on July 15 and the second on Oct. 5.

“Real estate taxes support schools, fire and police protection, and other public services and benefits afforded to County residents,” the county said. “You help absorb these costs in proportion to the amount of money your property is worth.”

Residents who have questions about their bills can contact the Treasurer’s Office by emailing [email protected] or calling 703-228-4000.
