Late Payment Penalty

A 10% late payment penalty is applied the day following the tax due date.  This fee is mandated by the Code of Virginia §58.1-3916 and Stafford County municipal code Chapter 23, section 23-3, 23-3.1,  and 23-4.


10% annual interest accrues monthly on the 1st of the month, following the due date.

Administrative Fee

An administrative fee may be applied 30 days from the first notification of delinquency as outlined in the Code of Virginia §58.1-3958.

Are Payment Plans an option?

Please contact the Treasurer's Office at 540.658.8700 to discuss your options.

You always have the option to make partial payments toward your balance as a promise to pay, however your account will remain subject to collections any time there is a delinquent balance due.
