Halifax County real estate tax bills sent

SoVaNow.com / June 02, 2014
After much concern on the part of Halifax County officials, the 2014 county real estate tax bills were mailed out at the end of last week. Taxpayers received one bill per parcel of deeded property. The bill prints the first installment due on June 16 and the second installment due on Dec. 5.

County Treasurer Linda Foster asks that the bottom of the first installment be returned by June 16 to avoid penalty and interest. Tax payers are asked to keep the second installment payment for Dec. 5 since they will not receive a second bill for the remainder of their annual tax. “You may mail both installments if you wish and pay your entire tax bill in full by June 16,” Foster writes.

Checks should be made payable to the County of Halifax and returned in the envelope provided for payment. Payments postmarked June 16, will be accepted without penalty or interest. If not paid by the deadline a 10 percent penalty and 10 percent per annum will be applied to the balance due.

Payments may also be made at the County Treasurer’s Office located in the Mary Bethune Office Complex, 1030 Cowford Road, Halifax. Also taxpayers can use major credit/debit cards to make payments for a nominal fee on line at WebFeePay.com. Please enter bill numbers, category of tax, and telephone number when using online payment. Online payments should also be recorded as of June16.

If you received a tax bill that is escrowed with your monthly payment, please forward your bill to the appropriate bank or mortgage company, Foster said. If you are a new land owner after Jan. 1, and did not receive a bill, please call the County Treasurer’s Office. Assessments on the land book are made as of Jan. 1. It is the responsibility of the owner to make sure his bills are paid in a timely manner. All address changes should be forwarded to the Commissioner of Revenue. If you did not receive a bill, please call the County Treasurer’s Office at (434)476-3318 Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
