In an effort to make the payment process easier than ever, Chesterfield County’s Treasurer’s Office continues to offer a growing list of options this spring for residents to pay their taxes.
Payments for both personal property and the first-half installments of real estate taxes, which are due on June 5, can be made anytime at a variety of locations and in secure ways.
Here are the various ways to pay:
- Mail In: As always, the easiest way to pay your tax bill is to mail in your payment. Starting in 2022, the Treasurer’s Office made it possible for all payments to be processed locally rather than having them mailed to Charlotte. Instead, each payment is mailed directly the Treasurer’s Office P.O. Box 70 Chesterfield, VA 23832
- By Phone: Tax payers can call (833) 299-6593 and pay their bills via the automated phone system. You’ll need to know your account number and verify your identity before making your payment.
- Online Portal: Residents can choose to make their payments online via the Treasurer’s Office website by creating a user ID and associating all of their personal property and real estate accounts. By creating this user ID, all payments and statements are brought under one umbrella for easy access. Payments can be made either instantly or scheduled to run at a future date.
In order to create a user ID, a taxpayer needs 1) the property tax accounts number and 2) the last five digits of the primary account holder’s Social Security Number and Driver’s License number.
When using the online payment portal, paying by eCheck does not have processing fees for the taxpayer.
- Automated Payment Service (APS): The Treasurer’s Office also offers an automated payment service wherein the tax payment will be debited directly from the taxpayer’s bank account on the due date, at no charge to the taxpayer. For more information, see https://www.chesterfield.gov/734/Tax-Payment-Options
- Online Bill Pay: If you are using your bank’s online bill pay function, you will need to include company name (Treasurer, Chesterfield County), address (P.O. Box 70 Chesterfield VA 23832) and the account number found in the upper right corner of your bill. Please create a separate payee for each account number.
- Self-Service Kiosks: The Treasurer’s Office now has four kiosks where residents can pay their taxes this year. In addition to the kiosks at the County Admin Building (9901 Lori Road), the North Courthouse Library (325 Courthouse Road) and at Meadowdale Library (4301 Meadowdale Blvd), there’s a new location added at Clover Hill Library (6701 Deer Run Drive). Again, these are secured payment centers that are available 24 hours a day. All kiosks accept cash, check, credit, or debit. A receipt is also provided for your records. There are no fees for payments made by cash or check.
- Drop Box: In addition to mailing your payment, you can also pay your tax bill by utilizing the secure drop box located in the parking lot at the County Admin Building.
- In Person: Lastly, tax payers can come to the Treasurer’s Office in the Administration Building Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to pay their tax bills. New this year is an in-person option being offered at the Old Matoaca Elementary School (6627 River Road) from May 30 through June 5 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.
