The reassessment team has never come into my home before - why would they need to now?

The Board of Supervisors and many taxpayers were unsatisfied with the reassessment processes used in the past, so Pittsylvania County is working hard and utilizing new methods to ensure that taxes are fair and equitable. Allowing the reassessment team to view your home’s interior conditions, construction quality, and finish and furnishings (flooring type, baseboards, window treatment, etc.), as well as view any major damages or renovations that may have happened in the last few years, will help them to make a more accurate assessment of your home’s current value. This means that the more access you provide the more accurate your property will be valuated, and the more fair (not necessarily higher) your tax bill will be.
