PURCELLVILLE, Va. December 20, 2021 —
The Town of Purcellville will transition the billing and collection of personal property and real estate taxes as of January 1, 2022. Below is a recent news release from Loudoun County explaining the change.
New Payment Process for Personal Property & Real Estate Taxes for Taxpayers in Purcellville and Hamilton Effective January 1, 2022
Loudoun County is assuming responsibility for assessing, billing and collecting personal property and real estate taxes in the Towns of Purcellville and Hamilton effective January 1, 2022.
Residents and businesses in Purcellville and Hamilton will receive combined semi-annual bills that include all county-administered taxes as separate line items. Each line item will show the respective county or town tax rate and amount. Taxpayers will remit a single payment for the total amount of taxes to the County of Loudoun. The new process will apply to the first half tax bill due May 5, 2022.
The Treasurer’s Office will process the tax payments and transmit the appropriate amount to the Towns of Purcellville and Hamilton. The Treasurer’s Office will also undertake any collection efforts for all accounts which may become delinquent after the January 1, 2022, effective date. Purcellville and Hamilton will continue with delinquent collection efforts for all taxes due for 2021 and prior years.
This process change is part of an overall effort to centralize the tax system of the county and the towns to improve efficiency, economy and customer service to taxpayers. The first phase of this initiative began in 2019 with the county assuming responsibility for real estate taxes in the Towns of Hillsboro, Leesburg, Lovettsville, Middleburg and Round Hill. In 2020, the county assumed responsibility for personal property taxes in the Towns of Leesburg and Round Hill and business tangible personal property taxes in the Towns of Leesburg, Middleburg and Round Hill.
