Middlesex County 2021 Tax Notice

The 2021 second installment Middlesex County Real Estate Tax and the annual Personal Property bills will be mailed out by the end of the month. The due date for payment of these bills is December 6, 2021. By law, payments made in the Treasurer's Office or postmarked with the date of Monday, December 6, 2021 or before will be accepted as timely. Accounts remaining unpaid after December 7, 2021 will be subject to additional charges as provided by the Code of Virginia.

Please check your bills for completeness upon receipt. By law, failure to receive a bill does not relieve the taxpayer of any additional charges that will accrue for failure to pay by the due date. The Treasurer's Office is located in the Woodward Building in the courthouse complex in Saluda. A drop box for 24-hour payment service is also available at this location. Staff will be available during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 to 4:30 to collect payment.

If taxes are paid during office hours, please bring exact cash, money order or check. For your convenience, taxes can be paid at any “local - Middlesex” Primis, BB&T(Truist) or C&F Bank before December 6, 2021 and accepted as timely.
