The Alleghany County Tax Office is responsible for the assessing, listing and collection of all real estate, personal property, business personal property and registered motor vehicles located within Alleghany County.
Our county has approximately 16,000 real estate parcels, 1,000 businesses, 800 personal property accounts and 14,500 registered motor vehicles which the Tax Office bills and collects taxes on.
There are exclusions that are available to the elderly or disabled. There are also exemptions available for properties used for agricultural, religious, educational and/or charitable purposes. The forms for these exclusions and exemptions can be obtained in the Assessing Office. You may contact Tax Administrator, Rita B. Miller, for further information regarding these programs.
Alleghany County conducts a General Reappraisal of Real Estate Values every eight years. All Appraisals are effective as of January 1, 2007. Real Estate values are based upon the market values of property at the time of the reappraisal. Property owners may appeal their values during the annually scheduled meetings of the Alleghany County Board of Equalization and Review. To obtain information regarding appeals contact the Tax Administrator.
The taxes on Registered Motor Vehicles are collected by the County Tax Collector. For further information on vehicle accounts you may contact Tax Collector, Sherry Roberts, in the Collections Office at 372-8291.
When recording a deed with the Alleghany County Register of Deeds, a Deed Certification form must be approved by the Collections Office. This form certifies that all delinquent taxes on the subject parcel of land are paid. The form can be picked up in either the Tax Office or Register of eeds Offices. For information on Deed Certification contact Tax Collector, Linda Killon or Sherry Roberts in the Collections Office.
