The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors authorized advertisement of a real estate tax rate for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 of $1.13 per $100 of assessed value, which is the current FY 2017 rate.

Advertising an increase in the rate does not prevent the board from lowering any advertised tax rate, but a higher tax rate cannot be imposed without advertising the higher rate.

The value of a penny on the Real Estate Tax Rate is $23.75 million in FY 2018.

Public hearings on the proposed FY 2018 Budget and tax rate are held in the Fairfax County Government Center Board Auditorium:

  1. April 4, 4 p.m.
  2. April 5, 1 p.m.
  3. April 6, 1 p.m.
