Changes made to 2018 personal property tax bills
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield County Treasurer Carey Adams wants to inform residents that personal property and real estate tax bills have been mailed and are due June 5. New for 2018, changes were made to the personal property tax bill format resulting in efficiencies and cost savings in mailing, payment processing and supplies.
Customers will first notice the new statement format. Instead of receiving separate personal property tax bills for each piece of property owned, citizens will now receive a consolidated statement based upon the ownership of the property. For example, if John and Jane own two cars together with both names on each title, they will receive only one statement. If John owns one car and is the only name on the title and Jane owns another car with her name on the title, then each will receive a statement.
For those customers who use online banking to pay their bills, please note your tax account number has changed. To ensure your payment is posted accurately and timely, please use the account number shown in the upper-right corner of your tax statement. If you receive multiple statements, each one will have a different account number.
Also new this year is the ability to pay multiple personal property and real estate tax accounts in one transaction for a single fee of $3.95, if using a VISA debit card. Payments can be made online at www.chesterfield.gov/payments or by calling 1-877-690-3729. See the back of your personal property or real estate statement for additional instructions.
All of the above information is enclosed in residents’ personal property tax bills. For more information, contact the Chesterfield County Treasurer’s Office at 804-748-1201.
