Mandatory Property Tax Exemptions Survey Underway; Responses Due July 21

June 25, 2021

Language was included in the 2021 Appropriations Act at the request of VACo and VML to direct the Commission on Local Government to undertake a review of the effects of mandatory property tax exemptions on local government finances, to include potential recommendations to mitigate the effects of these exemptions on localities. As part of the study, Commission staff have sent a survey to local governments to ascertain revenue impacts of the exemptions mandated by the recent passage of several Constitutional amendments (tax exemptions for disabled veterans and their surviving spouses and the surviving spouses of servicemembers who are killed in action).

VACo strongly encourages counties to participate in the survey. Responses are due by July 21, 2021. Questions may be directed to David Conmy at
