All real property in Arlington is subject to taxation, except that which is specifically exempt.
Tax assessments are determined by the tax rate (set by the County Board) and the value of the property, which is assessed by the Department of Real Estate Assessments.
Real Estate taxes are billed in two equal installments each year:
The due dates for both installments are the same every year. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, late payment penalties will not be assessed for payments made on the following business day. Per the code of Virginia, it is the taxpayer's responsibility to know the due dates and ensure that payment is made on time.
