Prince William Tax Deadline Looms
WOODBRIDGE, Va. — The Prince William County Department of Finance reminds residents that personal property taxes are due on or before Friday, Oct. 5, 2012.
There are several convenient ways to pay your bill. If you choose to pay by check, mail payments in the remittance envelope included with your tax bill. Make checks payable to “Prince William County.” Payments by mail must be postmarked no later than Oct. 5, 2012, to avoid a late payment penalty and interest charges.
You can also pay taxes online using eCheck. The eCheck system is Prince William County’s automated payment system that allows you to pay real estate taxes, personal property taxes, and other taxes over the Internet. This option saves you the time it takes to write and mail a check and the cost of postage. It also eliminates worry about mail delays. To access the eCheck system, visit pwcgov.org/tax.
In addition, taxes can be paid using your Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit card. This service is available via phone at 1-888-2PAY-TAX or online at officialpayments.com. Please note that there is an additional service fee added to your charge for use of this service. Information on how to pay by credit card and instructions for using this service can be found on the reverse side of your tax bill.
Taxes can also be paid in person at the County’s Tax Administration Offices at the James J. McCoart Administration Building, Dr. A.J. Ferlazzo Building and the Sudley North Government Center. Those offices are open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
The in person payment locations and the phone center will remain open until 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 3, 4, and 5, 2012.
Residents who have not received a tax bill, or who have questions about their bill should contact the County Tax Administration Office at 703-792-6710 (Metro 703-631-1703, ext. 6710) or e-mail Taxpayer_Services@pwcgov.org.
