Real estate tax is imposed upon land, buildings, and other improvements to land, and is based upon the monetary value of the property. All assessments are at 100% appraised value. A General Reassessment is conducted every 6 years by a firm employed by the Board of Supervisors. Descriptions of properties and property maps are located in the Commissioner of the Revenue's Office.

Reassessment of Real Estate

Reassessment on real estate in Greensville County is done every six years. At this time the Board of Supervisors hires a mass appraisal firm to go out and assess each parcel of real estate in the county. At the completion of the assessment, notices are mailed to every landowner of the value/assessment of each parcel. Every landowner will have an opportunity to set up an appointment with the mass appraisal company to contest their new assessment. If the taxpayer is not satisfied with the decision, a Board of Equalization will meet with them to discuss their assessment. Once the real estate books are signed, the assessments are set until the next reassessment (except for new construction, buildings torn or burned down, splits of parcels, subdivisions, zoning changes). After these options are utilized, the only way to contest an assessment is for the taxpayer to take it to court.
