Pay Real Estate Taxes


Pay your real estate taxes in one of many ways we offer. Most homeowners pay Fairfax County's real estate tax as part of a monthly mortgage payment. Your mortgage company then sends the taxes directly to the county. However, some homeowners must pay their real estate taxes directly (by July 28 and Dec. 5) through the options listed below.

Want to pay another tax type? Pay car taxes and vehicle registration fees or pay business personal property taxes.
