Commissioner of Revenue

Welcome to Smyth County - the home of Hungry Mother State Park ,       
the gateway to the  Mount Rogers Natural Recreation Center, and     
a hub of business and industrial development in Southwest Virginia.    
This is home to us and a great place for you to be. 

We work diligently to help to provide for the needs of our citizens, yet strive to     
protect them from excessive tax structures so individuals can make     
the investments they need and spur on economic growth from the grass roots.    
I am pleased to be elected to serve our community, and work with my staff to
insure equitable assessment of personal property, business equipment and 
machinery & tools.  We provide real estate data to the Board of Supervisors'  appointed assessors and Board of Equalization.  We compile different forms of information to assist the Board of Supervisors make the difficult choices they are charged in making to help Smyth County grow. Real Estate information is transferred to our office from the Clerk of the Court office and we strive to insure the information is properly maintained and up to date.

We work to assist constituents applying for Senior Citizen / Totally & Permanently Disable Tax Relief, Veterans Tax Relief, processing their Virginia State Income Tax and estimated tax payments, reporting their personal property, and insuring businesses and industries properly completed and processed.

Working to help make Smyth County a Great Place to Live, Work, and Prosper.
