Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue
The Commissioner of the Revenue is one of Loudoun's five constitutional officers. Specifically established by the Constitution of Virginia, these local officers are elected by Loudoun citizens.

As the chief tax assessing officer, the Commissioner’s primary duty under the Code of Virginia § 58.1-3103 is to ascertain and assess, at fair market value, all real and personal property in Loudoun. The Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue administers business licenses, land use assessment, a tax relief program for persons 65 or older or with disabilities, and also provides state income tax filing assistance. The office also serves as a DMV Select agent, providing Virginia state vehicle registration, titling, and license plate services.

2015 BUSINESS PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX filing is due by April 15, 2015. All property located in Loudoun County on January 1 and used or available for use in a business is taxable and must be reported. An asset list with a description of the item, the original cost and the year purchased should be included. This includes property owned by the business, property received as a gift, property that is leased or rented and property that is fully depreciated or expensed for federal tax purposes. New this year, home-based businesses are now exempt from the annual business equipment filing requirement for personal effects such as cell phones, tablets, personal computers and peripherals such as printers.

2015 BUSINESS LICENSE RENEWAL
Business owners must renew their business license registration each year by reporting the business's gross receipts. The renewal should be completed online. Both filing and payment were due by the March 1st deadline. Late filing penalties may be assessed for renewals submitted after March 1.

The 2015 filing deadlines for TAX RELIEF FOR THE ELDERLY & DISABLED applications and certifications are:
  • April 1, 2015, for all applicants who filed previously
  • September 1, 2015, for first-time personal property relief
  • December 31, 2015, for first-time real property relief

VIEW YOUR 2015 REAL ESTATE VALUE
Loudoun County real estate assessment notices were mailed the week of February 9, 2015. These assessment notices, which are not tax bills, communicate to property owners the value of their real property as of January 1, 2015, and are reflective of sales activity occurring in the local real estate market during 2014.  Significant changes were made to the real estate assessment notice this year.  Due to legislation adopted during last year’s General Assembly session, localities must now report on assessment notices not only the new and immediately prior assessed values of property, but the prior two years’ values, total tax levied, and the percentage year-over-year changes in total taxes levied.  Notices have also been enhanced to provide property owners additional information regarding their real property. Commercial property owners can expect to begin receiving income and expense forms in the mail in April.  At the same time, the form will be made available online.

The deadline to request a review of your real estate assessment from the Commissioner of the Revenue was March 9th. However, property owners who believe their assessments do not reflect market value or are not equitable with similar properties, may file an application with the Loudoun County Board of Equalization by June 1, 2015.

Property owners who believe there is an error with property characteristics; living area, condition, etc., please contact our office to schedule an inspection with your appraiser.
