Alexandria’s First Half of 2008 Real Estate Tax Due Monday, June 16
Convenient Payment Options Available
The City of Alexandria reminds property owners that payment of the first half of their 2008 Real Estate Tax and Refuse Fee is due Monday, June 16. To avoid late payment penalty and interest charges, payment must be received by the City or postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service no later than June 16.
Real estate tax bills were mailed on Tuesday, May 13. Property owners who have not received a tax bill in the mail and do not have their real estate tax paid by a mortgage company should call the City’s Treasury Division at 703.838.4777 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request a duplicate bill. Failure to receive a tax bill in the mail is not grounds for waiving the late payment penalty and interest or extending the June 16 due date.
The Finance Department urges Alexandria property owners to avoid waiting in line at City Hall by using one of the following convenient payment options:
Pay by eCheck online at alexandriava.gov/payments to have the payment deducted from a specified checking or savings account. There is no additional fee for using this service, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Pay by automatic bank debit. Real estate tax payments can be automatically deducted from a specified checking or savings account in monthly installments, or in two equal installments on each of the semi-annual tax due dates. There is no fee for using this service. However, registration is required at least 14 days before the desired debits are to take effect. Failure to enroll for the lump sum payment option by June 1 may result in a late payment if the tax is not paid by Monday, June 16.
