As required by State law, Isle of Wight County conducted a General Reassessment of Real Estate. All real property is assessed at “fair market value”.  The reassessment is effective July 1, 2015.  The Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group conducted the reassessment in conjunction with the Board of Assessors who are appointed by the Board of Supervisors.

A property owner has the right to appeal their property tax assessment.  The burden of proof, however, will be on the taxpayer to prove why they should have their assessment changed.  Just saying, “My taxes are too high” is not sufficient.  The following may happen on appeal:  the assessed value may  be raised; it may be lowered; or it may remain the same.

You may appeal by the following processes:

1.  Any appeals that are not resolved by the Reassessment Office may be reviewed by the Board of Assessors which meets April 13, 2015 through April 20, 2015.

2.   After that, a new appeal application must be submitted to the Board of Equalization in order for the Board to rule on the appeal. This Board meets for one year beginning July 1 of the reassessment year to the following June 30 of the next calendar year (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016).

3.   The final appeal after the Board of Equalization would be to petition the Isle of Wight County Circuit Court for judicial review. The Code of Virginia provides all property owners the opportunity to appeal an unfair reassessment through the Circuit Court system within three years of the effective date of the reassessment (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2019).
