Tax statements mailed
The 2015 Patrick County real estate tax statements are being mailed on Wednesday, April 22 (today), according to Treasurer Sandra K. Stone.
The statement design is the same as in year 2014: one statement with two payment stubs. The first half of the real estate tax is due June 5 and the second half is due Dec. 7.
Taxpayers are mailed one notice for each real estate parcel owned and it is up to the taxpayer to bring or mail the payment by each due date. No reminder notice will be mailed.
Please read the statement carefully; each stub states the appropriate due date. If taxpayers wish, they may pay the annual amount in full by sending both payment stubs, along with the annual amount, by the June 5 due date.
A 10% penalty is added to the first half of unpaid taxes on June 6. Interest at a rate of 10% per annum will begin to accrue on unpaid taxes and penalty 26 days after each due date. An insert is included with the tax statements explaining the real estate due dates.
If taxpayers do not receive their 2015 real estate tax notice by the middle of May, they should call the treasurer's office at 276-694-7257.
The Patrick County Treasurer's Office is located in Room 221 of the Patrick County Veterans' Memorial Building in Stuart.
The mailing address is P.O. Box 668, Stuart, VA 24171.
