The closing process of real estate is an agreement between the buyer and the seller. The Pittsylvania County Treasurer’s Office is not a party to this agreement.
Pursuant to the Code of Virginia, 58.1-3281, the beginning of the tax year for the assessment of taxes on real estate shall be January 1st and the owner of real estate on the day shall be assessed for the taxes for the year beginning on that day.
We will forward the bill to the new owners at your request; however, legal action for delinquent taxes will go against whomever owned the property January 1st.
