The recent property value reassessment in Pittsylvania County has caused a lot of concern among citizens fearful that their property tax will dramatically increase next year.
Citizens are being given the chance to have a one-on-one meeting with officials to discuss their reassessments on several dates this month.
Representatives from Brightminds, the company that performed the reassessment for Pittsylvania County, will be available at the Community Center in Chatham from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday between December 6-17 to explain the process, answer questions, and help property owners understand their assessment. Extra time will be given on December 9 when they extend hours to 7:30 p.m. While property owners can walk in, it is recommended to schedule an appointment by calling 434-432-3581 or sending an email to Brightminds.
Officials at Brightminds understand that the process can be confusing and they want to help property owners understand their property's assessment. Anyone who wants to formally dispute their assessment can do so through the Board of Equalization in the spring of 2022. Additional information about that process will be given after the informal hearing process.
