Real Estate Tax Relief and Exemptions

Real Estate Tax Relief Eligibility

Certain qualified individuals are eligible for real estate tax relief or tax exemptions, including the elderly and disabled, emergency services providers, surviving spouses, and veterans. Please email the Commissioner of the Revenue for further details.

Due to the Privacy Act, the Commissioner of the Revenue is unable to discuss your application to anyone else other than the applicant(s), unless we are provided a copy of a filed power of attorney or appointment of representative.

Elderly and Disabled

The Commissioner of the Revenue is responsible for administering a program for tax relief on real estate (and mobile homes) for eligible elderly and disabled residents of Chesterfield County. You may be eligible if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are 65 years or older or totally and permanently disabled, as of Dec. 31 preceding the year of your application.
  • You must own your home.
  • Your total household income is less than $62,000.
  • Your assets excluding your home do not exceed $392,700.

If you feel you meet the criteria and would like to apply and/or to appoint someone to represent you during the real estate tax relief application process, complete your application in the Citizen Portal or by downloading the Elderly and Disabled Tax Relief application and instructions (PDF).
