Billing and Collection of Personal Property and Real Estate Taxes
The Treasurer’s Office is responsible for the billing and collection of personal property and real estate taxes. Because our office acts as the county’s banker, all payments, including credit card payments, go through the Treasurer's Office. Among other additional duties, the Treasurer is Chesterfield County’s investment officer and statutory supervisor of unclaimed property.
