Effective June 1, 2022, the Fairfax County Department of Tax Administration will begin collecting the Town of Herndon's current real property taxes and those after that. The Herndon Town Council approved the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on February 8, 2022, which laid out the new agreement. The town will invoice its pre-2020 tax year and past due invoices.
"This agreement creates efficiencies for both the Town of Herndon and Fairfax County – but, more importantly, for real property owners in the town," said Mayor Sheila Olem.
Town residents who owe real estate taxes must pay them by July 28, 2022, and Dec. 5, 2022.
"We are excited to partner with the Town of Herndon on this important initiative and strengthen government efficiency," said Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeffrey C. McKay.
The Town of Herndon is notifying major mortgage firms that their first tax statements for both the town and Fairfax County will be sent to them in June 2022.
