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 and 800 personal property accounts which the Tax Office bills and collects taxes on.
There are exemptions available for properties used for religious, educational and/or charitable purposes. Exclusions are available to the elderly or disabled. Present-Use Value Program is available for properties used for agricultural, horticultural, forestry or wildlife. 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. We are currently working on the 2015 re-evaluation. The 2015 new assessment notices will be mailed to property owner in December 2014.
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 Deeds Offices. For information on Deed Certification contact Tax Collector, Linda Killon or Missy Smith in the Collections Office. To pay your tax bill online please click on the link below.
