The city of Richmond is authorized by state law to levy taxes on real property in
the city of Richmond. Property values are determined by the City Assessor and the Department of Finance issues
the tax bills based on the valuation information provided by the Assessor's Office.
Disabled Veterans, or their surviving spouses, who believe they
may be eligible for the real estate tax exemption effective January 1, 2011, as a result of an amendment to the
Virginia Constitution and subsequent legislation enacted by the Virginia General Assembly, should contact the
City Assessor's Office at (804) 646-7500 to obtain further information.
