Real Estate Taxes
Annual real estate taxes are billed in two installments. The first half payment is due by June 5th and the second payment is due by October 5th.
Hanover's real estate tax rate is .81 cents per $100 of assessed value. For example, a property with an assessed value of $100,000 would be taxed $810, each half-payment would be $405.
For most citizens that have a mortgage on their property, their lending institution escrows taxes and then pays Hanover County on the due dates. The mortgage company must request your bill from Hanover before each due date. If they do not, the bill is mailed directly to the owner. In either case, it is ultimately the owner's responsibility to ensure taxes are paid timely in order to avoid late payment fees.
Hanover issues supplemental real estate bills for new construction or additions. For more information see Supplemental
Real Estate Bills.
