Personal Property taxes on motor vehicles are prorated on a monthly basis, while mobile homes are not. For questions regarding mobile homes, please contact the Commissioner of the Revenue at 748-1281. Personal Property tax returns must be filed on or before March 1 of each year. Taxes are to be paid by the due date of June 5 to avoid penalties and interest. Failure to register your vehicle(s) with Chesterfield County Commissioner of the Revenue will result in a late filing penalty of 10 percent and interest.

Real Estate Taxes The Department of Real Estate Assessments is responsible for maintaining accurate and up-to-date records on each locally assessed property in Chesterfield County. Written documents, deeds, wills, etc., relating to the ownership of real estate filed in the Clerk’s Office of the Circuit Court of Chesterfield County are received and processed daily by the Assessor’s Office. Assessed values are based on market activity within a given area or neighborhood. Market activity (sales data) is used to establish fair market value. The fair market value of a property is defined as the price most people would pay for the property on the open market. Real Estate Taxes are due and payable twice a year, June 5 and December 5.

Business Personal Property Most persons or corporations owning tangible personal property (other than motor vehicles, trailers, boats, or aircraft) that is used or available for use in a trade or business (including processing businesses, but not manufacturing ) and located within Chesterfield County as of January 1 must file the Return of Business Tangible Personal Property (“BPP”) by March 1 to avoid a 10 percent late filing penalty. Business personal property tax, unlike that of vehicles, is not pro-rated. The property is assessed at various percentages of the total capitalized cost, depending on the year of acquisition. All such property must be reported annually, including that which has been expensed or fully depreciated, and items that once were (or still are) used for personal use while still available to business use. Unlike the business license process, payments for the business tangible personal property tax do not need to accompany the return. Tax bills are mailed by the Treasurer’s Office after the return is processed by the Commissioner’s Office, and are due to be paid on or before June 5 to avoid 10 percent late payment penalties and interest (10 percent per year, accrued monthly).

are subject to the Chesterfield County business license tax. This is a tax on the privilege of engaging in a licensable business activity within the County, and it is calculated upon gross receipts (or gross purchases in the case of wholesale merchants). New businesses must obtain all required licenses prior to beginning business in the County, and a late payment penalty of up to 10 percent of the tax due will be imposed along with interest if the licenses are not obtained within 30 days of the date the business opened. For existing businesses, renewal applications and appropriate tax payments must be filed in the Commissioner’s Office or postmarked on or before March 1 each year to avoid the late payment penalty and interest. In addition to completing the Application for Chesterfield County Business License, new businesses should complete the Business License Classification Questionnaire. This form provides information that is necessary in order to classify your business activities correctly. For assistance with the business license application or the licensing process, please contact the Commissioner’s Office at (804) 748-1281, or visit the office during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) All above information available

Our Staff Virginia’s court system includes the District Courts, consisting of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District (J & DR) Court and the General District Court. The J & DR District Court handles cases involving delinquents, juveniles accused of traffic violations, child abuse, spousal abuse, support and custody matters involving minors, and children in need of services. The General District Court hears civil cases involving amounts up to $15,000, criminal cases involving misdemeanors, and traffic violations. Clerks of the J & DR and General District Courts are appointed by the Chief Judges of those respective courts. Final decisions of the District Courts may be appealed to the Circuit Court. Circuit Court appeals cases are heard de novo. Unlike Circuit Courts, District Courts do not conduct jury trials nor do they have jurisdiction to adjudicate felony cases. Instead the District Courts are limited to holding preliminary hearings for felony cases to merely establish probable cause. For cases involving monetary disputes between $4,500 and $15,000, General District Courts and Circuit Courts have concurrent jurisdiction. For civil cases

exceeding $15,000, the Circuit Court has exclusive original jurisdiction. In addition, Circuit Courts have jurisdiction to preside over all types of criminal cases, including felonies and misdemeanor charges certified by a grand jury. Circuit Courts also preside over chancery suits (or those claims seeking judgments for something other than money). Circuit Court decisions may be appealed to the Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court of Virginia, depending on the type of case involved. Death penalty, lawyer disbarment, and most civil cases are appealed to the Supreme Court. The Chesterfield General District Court contains three divisions, the Civil, Criminal, and Traffic Courts.

CORRECTIONS Chesterfield County Jail 6900 Mimms Drive Chesterfield, VA 23832 (804) 748-1476 On May 12, 1749 a “Commission of the Peace” was issued by Governor William Gooch that created a judicial body to administer general laws. Governor Gooch appointed John Archer the first Sheriff of Chesterfield County. Griof Randolph was named his assistant. Sheriff Archer and Undersheriff Randolph were the first law enforcement officers for the County of Chesterfield. These gentlemen were also tasked with the security of the Judges, the courthouse and the jail. The earliest court records show the first court session taking place on July 7, 1749. In this session the court created the first acts of authorization for the building of a courthouse, prison and pillory. Chesterfield’s first jail had a rated capacity of three. The first Courthouse in Chesterfield was built in 1750. Jump to the early 1990’s, where the new, modern jail experienced enormous growth in the inmate population. The jail’s rated capacity at this time was approximately 150 prisoners. It was not unusual to find the count exceeding 400 on a regular basis. The county agreed to construct a facility that would ease the crowding problem. Plans were already set in motion to have Chesterfield participate in a Regional Jail that would be built at a later date. Construction on a Jail Annex began, with completion slated for the spring of 1994. The annex was built to house 115 prisoners, relieving the crowded conditions in the jail. The crowded conditions were relieved further with the opening of Riverside Regional Jail. This modern facility took many of the jail’s sentenced offenders awaiting transportation to the state system. Construction of a new, modern facility was completed in May of 2006. The county jail offers a Workforce program, which allows sentenced inmates to shorten the amount of

Juvenile Detention Center The Murphey Building 9600 Krause Road Chesterfield, VA 23832-6717 (804) 748-1460 The Chesterfield Juvenile Detention Home was established in 1973 to better provide for the public-safety needs of Chesterfield County residents. Its purpose is to ensure safe, secure custody for juveniles who are charged with or who have been found guilty of criminal offenses and are awaiting further court action. In 2003, the detention home’s capacity grew from 33 beds to 90. On March 6, 2003, a dedication ceremony was held to name the new facility after the late Douglas Woodfin Murphey, a judge of the 12th Judicial Circuit Court of Virginia. Murphey was selected for the honor because of his leadership and advocacy of the original detention home. Source:

Employment Overview Chesterfield’s labor pool is large enough to support and diverse enough to supply employees for almost any kind of new business. Richmond-Petersburg metro area’s civilian non-agricultural labor force consisted of 650,230 people in April 2008. Chesterfield’s portion of the labor pool totaled 169,560 in that same month. The workforce number is projected to continue to climb through the decade as in-migration augments the natural population increase. A high quality of life makes it easy to recruit key executives and managers from outside the area. Chesterfield’s unemployment rate remains at a low 3.0 percent, with 164,400 persons employed in April 2008. The majority of those workers still commute out of the county, but 39,740 workers commuted into Chesterfield County in 2000. Source:
