Real property tax in certain service districts; Fairfax County. Modifies and clarifies the special real property taxes that Fairfax County may impose in a service district to pay for the costs of the additional improvements and services provided in the district. The bill states that the tax may be imposed on property used for different purposes, not just zoned for different purposes. In addition, if the use or zoning of real property changes from one that is taxed in the service district to one that is not, then the local governing body may require the property owner to pay a lump sum equal to the present value of future taxes that will be lost as a result of the change in use or zoning. Amends § 15.2-2403, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
