Real estate reassessments will go in mail Oct. 6

Appraisers from a contractor visited each of Fauquier County’s 33,651 real estate parcels to help determine new values for tax purposes.
Fauquier real estate owners soon will learn the new values of their properties for county tax purposes.

The county on Friday, Oct. 6, will mail 33,651 assessment notices.

Fauquier reassesses property every four years. The Code of Virginia requires local government to reassess all property at 100 percent of fair market value.

The new values will take effect Jan. 1, with the first tax bills under reassessment due in June.

Fauquier paid Wampler Eanes Appraisal Group Ltd. of Daleville $804,400 to conduct the general assessment. The company has completed the three previous assessments for the county.

Wampler Eanes’ appraisers inspected every parcel in the county — both taxable and non-taxable — to establish values.

Property owners will have three chances to challenge assessments.

Wampler Eanes representatives will conduct public hearings Monday, Oct. 23, through Friday, Dec. 8.

Hearing decisions will be mailed to property owners in late December.

If still dissatisfied with those assessments, property owners can appeal to the Fauquier County Board of Equalization. That board’s public hearings will begin in late March or early April.

As a last resort, property owners can appeal assessments to the circuit court.

Fauquier’s board of supervisors will use the new data to set the real estate tax rate, which stands at $1.039 per $100 assessed value.

The owner of an average home in Fauquier, assessed at $321,300, pays $3,211 annually in county real estate taxes.

The county expects this year to collect $98.9 million in real estate taxes — Fauquier’s largest source of revenue.
