At the Sept. 21 Appomattox County Board of Supervisors meeting, Treasurer Vicky Phelps appeared before the board to provide a report on revenue collections from June to September.
Phelps said her office sent letters to real estate delinquent property tax owners who were three years or more delinquent on taxes. Those letters were sent the second week of August.
Since sending out those letters, Phelps shared that her office collected $71,185 in delinquent taxes.
Fiscal 2020 tax collections (Dec. 5, 2019, through June 5, 2020) span over $8 million. Personal property came out to more than $4 million.
From May until September, the Treasurer’s Office has collected more than $4 million in real estate taxes for June. For personal property, it has collected more than $2 million.
DMV stops were applied in Februrary. Since February, more than $25,000 has been collected. This would be the county’s revenue, Phelps explained.
