If you have any questions on your Real Estate Tax, please contact our office at 703-753-2600.  Or email Sherrie Wilson at swilson@townofhaymarket.org

The tax rate this year is .153/$100 of assessed value.

 

As a seller.......be advised that the Town of Haymarket does not prorate taxes.  If you have sold your home during the year, taxes should be prorated to the purchaser, and the purchaser will be responsible for the entire year.

 As a Purchaser........

Code of Virginia (Section 58.1-3340 Lien on real estate for taxes and levies assessed thereon;responsibility of purchaser at sale; lien on rents.): 

“There shall be a lien on real estate for the payment of taxes and levies assessed thereon prior to any other lien or encumbrance. The lien shall continue to be such prior lien until actual payment shall have been made to the proper officer of the taxing authority. The purchaser at a sale shall cause the proceeds to be applied to the payment of all taxes and levies assessed on real estate, the provisions of § 55-59.4 notwithstanding…….”

 

This means any purchaser at the sale of property, has the duty to ensure that the proceeds from the sale satisfy the taxes assessed against the property, and can be held personally liable for the amounts not remitted.
