The 2022 Notices of Real Estate Assessment Change for Spotsylvania County were mailed on February 9, 2022. Real Estate Assessments are based on sales of real estate over the past two years. The assessment process is a state mandated program and is not controlled at the local level by the Board of Supervisors.

The Office of Real Estate Assessments reviews and assesses property every two years. This assessment notice reflects the revised assessed value as of January 1st. Spotsylvania County is required to assess property at one hundred % (100%) of fair market value. Code of Virginia, Taxation Section 58.1-3201.

Property values change from year to year because of market appreciation or depreciation, new construction, additions, rezoning, land subdivisions, or other changes. Reassessments ensure accuracy, uniformity and equalization of assessed values throughout the County. The assessments have been made by County staff appraisers.

Instructions to Appeal:

If you believe the proposed assessed value does not represent fair market value or is not comparable with similar properties, please make an appointment to discuss and/or appeal the assessment by visiting the Office of Real Estate Assessments or by calling 540-507-7777 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 pm, Monday through Friday.

  • To review your assessment with an appraiser, please call 540-507-7777 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 pm, Monday through Friday.  All phone conference appointments must be completed before the appeal deadline date. Anyone other than a family member representing the property owner must provide written authorization signed by the owner.
  • If you are unable to informally resolve your dispute with the appraiser, you can file a formal detailed appeal using the form titled ’Application for Review of Real Estate Assessment.’ Appeal forms and instructions are available at the Office of Real Estate Assessments, the Spotsylvania County website, at local libraries, or can be mailed at the request of the taxpayer. Completed appeal forms with supporting documentation must be hand delivered to the Office of Real Estate Assessments, postmarked , emailed or faxed by the appeal deadline date. Upon hearing such complaints, the appraisers will give consideration and increase, decrease or affirm such real estate assessments. The taxpayer will be notified in writing of the final decision at the end of March.
  • If you are still dissatisfied with the Assessment, you may further appeal to the Board of Equalization appointed by the Circuit Court. Appeal form for the Board of Equalization will be available on the Spotsylvania County website or at the Office of Real Estate Assessments at the end of March.

The Assessment is presumed to be correct. By formal appeal, the burden is on the taxpayer to show that the property is assessed at more or less than its fair market value, that the assessment is not uniform, that it is not equalized, or that there are mistakes of fact.

You or your representative must provide supporting documentation when appealing your assessment. All documentation must be submitted with the appeal by the deadline date. Assessment appeals and supporting documentation will not be accepted after the deadline.

All written correspondence should include the Tax Map Number of the subject property and include a day and evening telephone number where you may be reached. Written inquiries will receive the same consideration as appointments.
