Assessments and Taxes
Homebuyer Financial Considerations: Assessments and Taxes
Real estate in Virginia is assessed at 100 percent of its fair market value. Real property tax bills are based on the real property assessment and the real property tax rate, which is set annually by the Board of Supervisors.
Personal property tax is levied each calendar year on all motor vehicles, trailers, campers, mobile homes, boats and airplanes if it is registered to a county address with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

Real Estate Tax, Assessment & Parcel Database
Information about any piece of property in Loudoun County can be found in the Real Estate Tax, Assessment & Parcel Database.
The property information on the site includes ownership and deed information, legal description, sales information, assessment values, and house characteristics. The database can be searched by Parcel ID Number (PIN), Address, or Tax Map Number. You can also view historical data about the property dating back ten years. The site is updated weekly. Parcels in the database are linked to the Loudoun County GIS Mapping System, with map overlays displaying boundary and environmental information such as topography, soils, flood plain and major roads.
All county residents living outside an incorporated town are required to purchase and display a Loudoun County Vehicle License Decal for their automobile or motorcycle within 60 days of entering the county. The fees for decals are billed with personal property taxes and are due to be paid to the Loudoun County Treasurer by October 5 of each year. New decals should be displayed each year prior to November 16.
