The Commissioner of the Revenue Office maintains real estate assessment cards and maps, updating them from information recorded in the Pittsylvania County Circuit Court Clerk's Office. The tax assessment is 100% fair market value.
The county conducts a general reassessment every 4 years, in which a firm is awarded a contract to appraise all real estate. The most recent general reassessment was completed on January 1, 2018. The tax rate for real estate is applied per $100 of assessed value. The Board of Supervisors sets the rate by June 30 of the current year.
