As required by State law, Isle of Wight County conducts a General Reassessment of Real Estate every four years.  All real property is assessed at “fair market value.”  The 2015 General Reassessment is effective from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2019.  The Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group, who is contracted by the Board of Supervisors, will conduct the 2019 General Reassessment that will go into effect July 1, 2019.

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 the new assessment as follows:

The administrative review has been completed and second notices should be mailed by May 1, 2019 to property owners who appealed their assessment.  A new appeal application must be submitted to the Board of Equalization (BOE) in order for the BOE to rule on the appeal.   The BOE meets for one year beginning July 1 of the reassessment year to the following June 30 of the next calendar year (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020).  An application will be available here soon.

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, 2019 – June 30, 2023).
