The Henrico County Board of Supervisors will consider a personal property tax relief proposal that would give residents an additional 60 days to make their first payments and provide a credit on year-end bills to offset higher-than-expected vehicle values.

In outlining the plan in a news conference today, officials said the Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday, May 10 on an emergency ordinance that would delay by two months – from June 6 to Aug. 5 – the due date for the first installment of all personal property taxes without penalties or interest.
