To the Fairfax County Community,
Yesterday, we held the first full Board meeting of 2021. Because of the sustained increase in COVID-19 cases, we held the meeting virtually and will continue to do so until it is safe to return in-person.
I wanted to use this space to highlight an announcement we made yesterday to extend the deadline of real estate and vehicle tax relief. The County’s tax relief program provides additional aid to seniors above the age of 65 and those who are permanently and totally disabled. Qualified taxpayers may also be eligible for tax relief for renters.
Applicants must file between January 1, 2021 and May 3, 2021. Some exceptions may be available if applications are filed late due to a hardship which prevented the application from being filed on time.
This decision was made in an effort to ease the economic burdens caused by COVID-19 for a group of our community that often has fixed incomes. It was a simple action that I'm glad we were able to accommodate.
The meeting agenda is available for your review here.
