City Council to Consider No Penalty on Paying Real Estate Taxes by March 2021

(Updated at 12:30 p.m.) The Alexandria City Council on Saturday will consider extending the deadline for paying the second installment of real estate taxes until March 1, 2021.

Council will consider the extension at its public hearing on Saturday, October 17.

The tax payments, which make up 63.4% of the city’s general fund budget.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our entire community, the City recognizes that the financial impact on some taxpayers may be particularly substantial,” according to language that City Council will consider. “If the COVID-19 pandemic has affected your ability to pay the full amount of the 2020 second installment of Real Estate Tax due by November 16, please email [email protected] to discuss your circumstances and learn about payment options.”

The resolution going before Council states that the city’s finance director should not charge a penalty for residents who pay their taxes by March 1 — if that resident has been impacted by COVID-19.
