Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Real Estate Reassessments

The Board of Supervisors exempted reassessment of real estate for calendar year 2024 (Fiscal Year 2025). What does that mean for my property?
Please disregard the real estate reassessment that was mailed out in January 2024. The calendar year 2023 (Fiscal Year 2024) valuations that were mailed in January of 2023 will be used instead. A copy can be viewed on the Assessor’s Office page on the County website or by calling the Assessor’s Office.

What is the difference between a calendar year and a fiscal year?
Prince George County performs real estate reassessments every calendar year. A calendar year runs from January 1 to December 31. The County’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.

Where can I locate the assessed value of my property for calendar year 2023 (Fiscal Year 2024 and Fiscal Year 2025)?
Citizens may obtain a copy from the Assessor’s Office by calling (804) 722-8629. Residents can also access the Property Online Database on the Assessor’s Office page on the County website. After a search query is performed, assessment information, including valuation year, can be found at the bottom of the page.

Where can I find my calendar year 2023 (Fiscal Year 2024) real estate tax bill?
Residents can view their calendar year 2023 (Fiscal Year 2024) real estate tax bill online by following these steps:
  • Log into Online Bill Pay. If you do not have an account, you must create one.
  • Click on “Real Estate” and enter your Parcel ID. Do not use any dashes or parentheses.
  • Click on “View Bill” for tax year 2024.
  • Click on “Assessment” in the gray box on the right side of the screen.
  • Users can also click “Assessment History” to view valuations from previous years. 
How will my taxes be impacted by the passing of the Ordinance?
The tax rate for real estate remains unchanged. The current real estate rate is $.82 per $100. Unless you have made improvements to your home, your real estate tax bill should remain the same.

What is the appeal process?
Citizens may only appeal their reassessments to the Board of Equalization when a reassessment is completed. Because there will be no reassessment for calendar year 2024 (Fiscal Year 2025), there are no reassessment appeals to the Board of Equalization this year.

If a resident has a concern about the calendar year 2023 (Fiscal Year 2024 and Fiscal Year 2025) reassessment, please contact the Assessor’s Office to have the concern addressed. If the concern is not resolved, a citizen may file an appeal with the Prince George County Circuit Court.

Will there be a calendar year 2025 (Fiscal Year 2026) reassessment?
Yes. On March 26, 2024, the Prince George County Board of Supervisors voted to hire Vision Government Solutions (Vision) to perform the calendar year 2025 (Fiscal Year 2026) reassessments.

How can I report fraud, waste, or abuse in Prince George County?
Citizens and County employees are encouraged to call the Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Hotline at (804) 722-8770. This anonymous fraud hotline was established in 2021 to promote the reporting of potential instances of fraud, misuse of funds, abuse of County resources, or neglect of duty by County staff within the local government.

The County strives to be the best place to live, learn, work, and raise a family. Fraud, waste, and abuse hinder the County from achieving this vision.
