We’ve all done it. You begin working on your federal and state taxes forms and realize you forgot where you left your car tax receipt or the notice from your mortgage company with your real estate tax amount.

With the April 18 Federal Income Tax deadline drawing near, there is a way to simplify your annual tax preparation. Instead of looking for those elusive pieces of paper, you can access personal property (car), real estate and even business tax information online via our new secure web portal called MyFairfax.
