Commissioner of Revenue:

The Commissioner of the Revenue is an elected constitutional officer who serves a four year term. Our office is dedicated to serving the citizens of Floyd County in an efficient and effective manner. We are located on the second floor of the Courthouse on the corner of Main Street and Locust Street. Our responsibilities include as follows:


Personal and Business Personal Property:

We encourage Floyd County residents to report their personal property yearly. If a person is a resident in Floyd County January 1 of each year they are required to report to the Commissioner of the Revenue by May 1st , the vehicles, trailers, mobile homes, boats, business equipment and merchants capital owned January 1st of that year. It is also beneficial to notify our office of change of addresses and if you move out of the county. Floyd is not a pro-rating county, therefore what you own January 1st of each year is taxable for the entire year. However, you are not obligated to pay another locality for the same year for personal property. To assist our taxpayers personal property forms are mailed annually.


Real Estate:

Transfers are processed in our office and real estate information is changed to reflect the owner of the property January 1st of that tax year. Again we are not a pro-rated county and real estate transfers recorded after January 1st of the tax year will not reflect the new owner. Arrangements of real estate taxes in such cases are usually handled by the attorney handling the closing. Reassessment of real estate dates are set by the Floyd County Board of Supervisors. Beginning the 2004 taxable year annual real estate taxes assessed within the county shall be paid in two equal semi-annual installments, the first installment being due and payable on or before June 5th of the taxable year and the second or remaining installment shall be due and payable on or before December 5th of the taxable year. All new buildings substantially completed or fit for use and occupancy prior to November 1st of completion shall be assessed when so complete or fit for use or occupancy. This ordinance shall not be effective in any year in which a general reassessment is conducted except for new Class Four buildings (Industrial/Commercial). All other new construction is picked up on a yearly basis.

Tax Relief:

Applications are available from January 1st thru April 1st of each year. This program would provide exemption from taxation of real estate owned by and occupied as the sole dwelling of a person not less than 65 years of age or older and/or determined to be permanently and totally disabled with a household gross income of $20,650 or less, and $75,000 or less net worth. The home and one acre surrounding is not including in the net worth. If you qualify for this program you would see up to a $200 exemption off your real estate tax ticket. Subject to the restrictions and conditions contained in the Ordinance establishing the exemption of real estate taxation for the elderly and disabled in the County of Floyd, Virginia.
