My real estate tax bill has an additional Ad Valorem tax on my property. What is an Ad Valorem tax?
Goochland County’s Ad Valorem tax is an additional tax assessed to properties located within the Tuckahoe Creek Service District (TCSD).
Pursuant to Section 15.2-2400 of the Code of Virginia of 1950, as amended, the Goochland Board of Supervisors may impose an ad valorem special tax on the assessed values of the tax map parcels in the service district to pay the costs of the district under the plan. All taxes levied and collected are pledged to finance the costs of the TCSD.
Here is a link to the County Code section that describes the district in detail:
