Real Estate Tax

Real Estate taxes are assessed by the City Assessor’s Office. The City Treasurer is responsible for collection of Real Estate taxes in the City of Norfolk. City Council sets the due dates and sets the tax rates on a yearly basis when the City budget is finalized.  

Taxes are collected on a Fiscal Year basis, which means the year starts on July 1st and ends June 30th. To pay taxes online, please visit our e-services portal. Taxes are collected on a quarterly basis as follows:

  • 1st quarter is due September 30th for the time frame July 1st through September 30th
  • 2nd quarter is due December 5th for the time frame October 1st through December 31st
  • 3rd quarter is due March 31st for the time frame January 1st through March 31st
  • 4th quarter is due June 5th for the time frame April 1st through June 30th

The Treasurer’s office has over 80,000 taxable parcels of land that are billed on a quarterly basis.  Quarterly bills are mailed out at least 30 days prior to the due date. The City Treasurer also collects nuisance abatement liens, which are received from Neighborhood Quality with 30 days to pay.
