The Goochland County Land Books are printed as of January 1st each year and placed in
the Circuit Court Record Room.
By law, the bills must match the Land Books so that Title Searchers are able to determine
taxes on any given property.
In order to get the bills to the new owner, we must address them to the owner on record
as of January 1st and then add “care of” the new owner.
The prior owner’s name will not be on the bill next year when you are the owner of
record on January 1st.
