The last general reassessment was conducted during 2017 and will be effective January 1, 2018. This is done every 4 years. The values adopted by the Assessor who oversaw the reassessment cannot be changed until the next reassessment unless changes are made in the size of the property, new construction or rezoning. Assessments are based upon a sales study that is conducted. The assessment remains the same until the next reassessment if there are no changes to the property, unless the assessment is changed by the Board of Equalization.
When the reassessment process is completed, the Assessor or Board of Assessors will hold hearings. At the completion of these hearings, a Board of Equalization is established to review any complaints and possibly act on them. Once the Board of Equalization has completed this review, the only option is to petition the Circuit Court in accordance with Section 58.1-3984 of the Code of Virginia. Please contact the King George County Court system for guidelines to proceed with this process.
The county tax maps are located in the Commissioner of the Revenue's office. Copies of deeds, wills, surveys and plats are located in the Clerk of the Circuit Court's office which is in the Courthouse building.
