Chesterfield Unveils Online Tax Payment Plan Application

Office of the Treasurer 

April 21, 2020

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Today, the Chesterfield County Office of the Treasurer unveiled an online application for taxpayers who are seeking payment plan options for personal property taxes and real estate taxes due Friday, June 5, 2020.

Those interested in applying for a tax payment plan may do so through the online application accessible via the Treasurer’s webpage, www.chesterfield.gov/Treasurer, or by calling the Treasurer’s Office at 804-748-1201.

Payment plans are available for both personal property and real estate tax payments, though the terms and conditions of the plans are determined on a case-by-case basis. Applicants should allow up to two business days for a representative from the Treasurer’s Office to respond to their online application submission.

As required by law, participating in a payment plan does not prevent additional interest and fees from accruing on a taxpayer’s account.

Tax statements were mailed by the Chesterfield Treasurer’s Office to applicable citizens and businesses beginning Friday, April 17. Tax balances may also be viewed through the Treasurer Office’s online payment portal using a tax account number, property address or map parcel number, all of which are listed on the tax statement.

Revenue generated by tax payments is used by Chesterfield County to fund a broad range of necessary and essential services, including health services, social services, public safety and more. Maintaining this revenue stream is especially vital during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the county is equipped to meet the evolving needs of community members.

However, in addition to applying for a tax payment plan, individuals and businesses unable to afford personal property tax and real estate tax payments may have local, state and federal options for relief:

Tax Payment Options

 Though the Treasurer’s Office is closed to the public and residents may not pay in person at this time, several tax payment options are available, including:

  • Online Banking: The online bill payment software of a taxpayer’s bank may also be used to pay Chesterfield taxes. Please note that the payment-effective date will be the date that the Treasurer’s Office receives the bank’s payment. Please allow sufficient time for processing by your bank. This payment must include the tax account number located on the tax invoice. A separate payee account is required for each unique tax account number. Please use the following remittance address for processing:

Treasurer, Chesterfield County
P.O. Box 70
Chesterfield, VA 23832-0906 

  • Online: Payments may be made through the Treasurer’s online payment portal 24 hours a day. To complete the transaction, taxpayers will need their tax account number (located at the top-right corner of each tax statement) and a valid credit or debit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard or VISA).
  • Phone: Payment by phone is available 24 hours a day by calling 1-877-690-3729. To complete a transaction by phone, taxpayers will need their jurisdiction code (1005), the tax account number located on their invoice and a valid credit or debit card.
  • Mail: Taxes may be paid by check through the mail using the return envelope enclosed in the tax statement. Checks should be made payable to “Treasurer, Chesterfield County.” Please include the coupon from the bottom of the tax invoice. Payments will not be considered late if postmarked on or before the tax due date.
  • Automatic Payment Services: The Chesterfield Treasurer’s Office offers convenient automatic payment services (APS) that allow payments to be automatically debited from a bank account on the tax due date. For information on how to sign up, visit the Treasurer’s Office webpage. Please be advised that it may take 30-45 days to activate this service for a taxpayer.
  • Drop Box: A drive-thru payment drop box is located in the parking lot of the Chesterfield Administration Building, 9901 Lori Road, Chesterfield, Virginia 23832. No postage is necessary for payments made at the drop box, but payments must be made by check or money order. Payments must include the coupon from the bottom of the tax invoice. Envelopes are available at the drop box, and payments dropped by 11:59 p.m. are considered to be received that same day
