Budget your real estate taxes on a monthly basis by having your Bank, Savings and Loan or Credit Union account automatically drafted. All you have to do is give your authorization on the automatic bank draft form (PDF) and return it to the Botetourt County Treasurer's Office. The amount you indicate will be deducted on the 3rd of each month. You will receive a tax bill that will reflect the amount received through the most recent payment from your bank draft and indicate any balance due at the time the bills are printed. This would allow you to pay the balance prior to the due date.
You may select a monthly payment figure that is comfortable for you to pay each month or the Treasure's office will assist you in estimating your monthly draft to cover your annual tax bill. Either way, you gain by budgeting your tax bill on a monthly basis.
Upon completion of the authorization form, the County notifies your financial institution that you wish to have your tax payments withdrawn directly from your account. Your financial institution will then automatically withdraw the amount you authorized and forward it monthly to the County. No fee will be charged for this service. The pre-authorized tax payment plan will work with almost any bank or financial institution.
If you have any further questions or need assistance in any way, please contact the Treasurer's office at 540-928-2030 option 2.
