On May 9th, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisor's approved the FY 2024 budget (starting July 1st), which lowered the 2023 Fairfax property tax rate to $1.095 per $100 of assessed value (vs. the $1.11 rate for 2022). The County Executed proposed a $1.11 rate in February 2023, which was the same as the 2022 rate.

County-wide the assessment increases by property type are as follows:

  • Single family: +7.8%

  • Townhouse: +6.31%

  • Condo: +3.98%

The first half 2023 property tax bill is due on July 5th. The second half 2023 property tax bill is due on December 5th.
