Prepay Real Estate and Vehicle Taxes

The Fairfax County Department of Tax Administration (DTA) accepts real estate and vehicle tax prepayments from Fairfax County taxpayers. Fairfax County makes no representations about the deductibility of the advance tax payments for federal or state taxes. Residents are advised to seek tax advice from their tax advisors or from the Internal Revenue Service regarding deductibility of prepaid property taxes.

Tax rates for 2018 have not been finalized. Taxpayers seeking to prepay 2018 taxes may estimate their tax bill based upon their 2017. Once the tax rate is adopted by the Board of Supervisors in April 2018 any difference will be billed or in the case of a credit, a refund may be requested. If you are currently getting your taxes escrowed, you will be responsible for working with your mortgage company on any future adjustments to your escrow account.

If you wish to prepay your taxes please send a check to the address and individual below. Please note on the check the payment is for “prepayment 2018.” Include the parcel ID and or property number and make check payable to “County of Fairfax.”
