Refunds

Overpayment Refunds

Real estate taxes are payable in two equal installments on July 28th and December 5th of each year. Overpayments sometimes occur when a property is refinanced, sold, or multiple parties (taxpayer/lender, taxpayer/spouse) each submit a payment for the same property. Once a request is received, the normal processing time for refunds is 2 to 4 weeks.

Overpayment refunds of vehicle and business tangible property taxes will be sent within 2 to 4 weeks from the date of the payment or exoneration.

Refunds due to overpayment of Business, Professional and Occupational License (BPOL) tax are generally sent within 30 days.

If you have a question about a possible overpayment on your real estate, vehicle, business tangible property, or BPOL tax, or a refund you believe you're due, email DTARCD@fairfaxcounty.gov or call 703-222-8234 [TTY 711].
