Public Notices from The Treasurer
2013 2nd Half Real Estate Taxes
The 2013 2nd Half Real Estate tax bills were placed in the mail on August 30th, 2013. Payments are due by October 7th, 2013. If you have not received your bill by September 13th, 2013 you may view and/or pay your 2013 2nd half taxes on-line by visiting the Treasurer's On-Line Services or call the Treasurer’s Office at 804-365-6050 or 804-730-6050 for assistance.
If you are 65 years old or over, or are permanently disabled, you may qualify for real estate Tax Relief. There are very specific criteria which must be met, including residing on the property for which you are applying. You must apply for tax relief each year between January 1 and March 1 with the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office. For questions, phone 804-365-6128 or 804-730-6128.
Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the owner of penalty and interest if payment is not made by the due date. Tax bills are sent to owners of record on January 1, 2013; therefore, if property was conveyed by you in 2013, you should forward the bill to the new owner. If you purchased a parcel during 2013, contact the Treasurer’s office to have a copy of the tax bill forwarded to you.
Important Public Notice about County Decals
On April 13, 2011, the Board of Supervisors voted to eliminate the County decals. Citizens are still required to register their vehicle within 60 days from the date of purchase or from the date they move into Hanover. To register your vehicle with the Commissioner of the Revenue, click the following link: Online Vehicle Registration Form.
For vehicles that already have a county decal (pictured below on the left), they will be granted access to the county landfill/transfer stations. Any newly acquired vehicle, which needs to gain access to the county landfill/transfer stations, will be given a free landfill sticker (pictured below on the right) to display on their rearview mirror. These stickers can be picked up at any of the county landfill/transfer stations, Public Works Office or the Treasurerís Office.
