Assessments


If you are concerned in regards to the accuracy or fairness of your assessment, please look at the Assessment Process page which gives a brief overview of the assessment process as defined by the Code of Virginia.

Tax Relief


The city does provide tax relief for seniors, disabled veterans and disabled citizens. This program is overseen by Social Services.

Certain properties, after meeting requirements, are eligible for tax exemption for qualifying rehab work. This incentive program is designed to protect and preserve our maturing neighborhoods and offers partial tax exemption for the rehabilitation, renovation or replacement of qualifying structures. View more information on rehabilitation of property improvements.

Land Use Program


The City of Suffolk also has an Agricultural Abatement or Land Use program. This program is designed to promote the preservation of land for public benefit and is based on use value rather than market value. There are three qualifying uses: agricultural, horticultural, and forest.
