Board of Supervisors to Hold Hearing on Real Estate Tax Exemption

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is set to hold a public hearing about a real estate tax exemption involving disability income tomorrow (Tuesday).

Fairfax County currently provides income-based real estate tax relief to homeowners based on income and disability.

A revision to the Virginia Code in July now allows localities to exclude the disability income of disabled relatives living in a taxpayer’s home from the total combined income calculation.

The proposal before the Board of Supervisors would codify that exemption for taxpayers in Fairfax County.

County staff has said the tax change could “potentially [expand] the number of properties that qualify for tax relief.”

More from Fairfax County:

The total amount of relief resulting from this amendment is difficult to estimate because the Department of Tax Administration cannot precisely determine how many individuals will apply and qualify under the revised calculation. It is anticipated that the fiscal impact will be minor.

The public hearings start at 3 p.m. and the tax one is set to start around 4 p.m.

If approved, the change would go into effect on Jan. 1.
