Fairfax County Property Tax Rates Historical Chart – Version 2

Thanks to a very helpful librarian at the City of Fairfax Regional Library, I was able to make a little more progress in my search to create a historical chart of propert tax rates.  I am back to 1968.

The chart below shows “effective” tax rates.  up until 1977, the actual rate was higher – but real estate was only valued at 40% of it’s total assessment.  I have adjusted those earlier years to make an “apples to apples” comparison.  The number represents the tax per $100 of assessed value – as in $1.09 for every $100 of assessed value.  Sorry the chart isn’t too fancy – but I wanted to get this out there before I forget.

On a whim I tried looking for Personal Property (Home) tax rates for Fairfax County going back in time.  I was able to find back to 1995 while searching.  I’ve created the chart below.  If anyone has any corrections, further data, or can point me to earlier years just leave me a comment.
