Meals and lodging taxes
Starting now through August, penalties and interest will be waived on meals and lodging tax payments. While the tax payments will continue to be due on the 20th of each month, any late filing penalties and interest will be forgiven through August 20, 2020.
Machinery & tools, Commercial & Residential Real Estate, and Personal Property taxes for businesses and residents
The due date for payment of these taxes is June 5, 2020, however, Henrico County will waive penalties and interest on payments made by August 5, 2020.
