Defective forms delay some Va. tax bills
Some residents in Arlington County and the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church are getting a little extra time to pay their property tax bills.
Arlington County Treasurer Frank O'Leary said defective forms have led to a delay in mailing some 115,000 personal property tax bills. State law requires that the bills be mailed no later than 30 days before the deadline for paying them. By county ordinance, Oct. 5 is the payment deadline for personal property tax.
Arlington mailed about 45,000 bills last week and the remaining 70,000 bills are expected to go out this week, O'Leary said. Due to the delay, no penalties will be assessed to bills received by Oct. 15.
Additional printing and mailing costs will be borne by the supplier, Graphic Communications, O'Leary said
The delay in bills also affects the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church, which also uses forms from Graphic Communications.
