Taxes and Budget

Loudoun County’s population increased 35% between 2010 and 2020. During that time, the Board of Supervisors kept the tax rate at the equalized rate. The equalized tax rate is the rate at which the average homeowner’s tax bill remains the same each year. This has meant approving new developments to increase revenues to meet spending growth, and in the end our schools are still underfunded and there are unmet essential infrastructure and service needs.

My budget spending priorities, consequently, are to accelerate the construction of HS-14 to relieve overcrowding at Independence High School and start a land banking policy for parks, multi-use trails, schools and affordable housing.

When elected Supervisor, I will pass the lowest possible real and personal property tax rates while maintaining needed County services and adequately funding our schools. I will also call for a reduction in the vehicle personal property tax rate while proposing an increase in the business personal property tax rate for data center computer equipment to compensate. Currently, the tax rates are the same at $4.15 per $100 of assessed value.
