CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — To more efficiently serve residents while safeguarding employee and community health, Chesterfield’s Office of the Commissioner of the Revenue is now pre-scheduling in-person appointments by phone and email. Unscheduled walk-in visits to the office have been suspended indefinitely to optimize customer service during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During a pre-scheduled, in-person appointment, residents are required to wear a face covering over both their nose and mouth in all Chesterfield County buildings. Residents are also asked to observe physical distancing guidelines, as indicated.
“Moving to ‘by appointment’ office visits will allow us to provide a safe and efficient environment for taxpayers during the busy 2021 tax season,” said Commissioner of the Revenue Jenefer Hughes. “We safely reopened our office to residents in June, and we thank them for abiding by our mask and physical distancing policies as we work on their behalf.”
