The Lynchburg City Assessor's Office keeps an alphabetical ownership tax roll and assesses approximately 31,500 real estate property parcels, of which 1,500 are exempt.
To maintain the roll, the City Assessor must keep current property records showing physical characteristics of each parcel and in accordance with Chapter 18-48 of the Lynchburg City Code, Title 58.1 of the Code of Virginia, and Article X of the Virginia Constitution.
Property transfers and building permits are processed throughout the year and all parcels are reassessed biennially. Special appraisal estimates of value for budgeting and rental studies are prepared periodically.
