COVID-19 UPDATES

Since City Hall is now closed to the public, we encourage all residents to conduct their City business online wherever possible in order to stay home and be safe. Virtually all services provided by the Treasurer’s Office can be accessed online, by mail, or email.

If you have a question about any of the services or need help finding anything online, please email us at treasurer@fallschurchva.gov or call our main number at 703-248-5046 (TTY  711) and leave a message. 

While we encourage residents to stay home and conduct business online whenever possible, you can also drop-off payments at our Drop Box located just outside the front doors of the West Wing at City Hall (300 Park Ave.) Please do not deposit cash as this box is unattended. The Treasurer's Office is not responsible for the loss or theft of cash left in the box.

Application deadline for Senior Tax Relief has been extended to June 15 

The normal application deadline (April 15) for Senior Tax Relief has been extended 60 days (June 15) due to the Governor's State of Emergency and stay-at-home order. Learn more on the Tax Relief page.

Personal Property Tax 


The 2019 Personal Property Tax ("Car Tax") and Business Personal Property Tax bills were due Monday, October 7, 2019. A new City ordinance passed in August 2016 requires an additional late payment penalty on personal property bills that remain unpaid after 60 days. The additional penalty amount is 15 percent of the unpaid tax and will be applied on December 5, 2019. A statutory 10 percent penalty is already required on all bills remaining unpaid after the due date. The 15 percent penalty applied on December 5 will be in addition to the 10 percent. Please note that the so called “super penalty” only applies to personal property taxes. Avoid late payment penalties by paying on time!

Real Estate Tax Relief Program Changes

On July 8, 2019, the City Council voted to approve changes to the City’s Tax Relief for Low Income Seniors and Persons with Disabilities Program that were recommended by the City Treasurer and a Tax Relief Working Group. The changes - which are retroactive to July 1, 2019 - will reduce the real estate tax burden for qualifying candidates and revise the application timeline, among other adjustments.

In 2018, the City Manager appointed a working group to study the City’s current Tax Relief Program, review similar programs in neighboring jurisdictions, and provide recommendations for the Fiscal Year 2020 budget process. The Tax Relief Working Group met for over a year and proposed several changes to offer additional assistance to qualifying residents 65 years and older or persons with permanent and total disabilities.

The adopted changes include increasing the program’s maximum tax benefit to 100% for applicants earning 40% or less of the HUD Area Median Income (AMI), eliminating interest on all deferred taxes accrued on or after July 1, 2019, reducing the program’s exemption asset limit from $540,000 to $400,000, and move the tax relief program from a calendar year to fiscal year basis to align with the real estate tax billing cycle.
