Pulaski County Assessor

The County Assessor is tasked with the discovery, listing, classification, and the fair and equitable assessment of all real property in Pulaski County under the direction of the Commissioner of Revenue and the authority of the Constitution of Virginia, the Code of Virginia, and Pulaski County Ordinances. Assessments are conducted in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). The County Assessor is also responsible for reviewing and interpreting recorded survey information in order to update existing tax parcel maps and to incorporate these changes into the tax assessment and the Pulaski County Geographic Information System (GIS).

The Assessor's Office is located within the Commissioner of Revenue's Office on the second floor of the original stone courthouse in downtown Pulaski, Virginia. We can be reached by phone at (540) 980-7753 or email at assessor@pulaskicounty.org. Office hours are Monday – Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, excluding Holidays.

If you have questions about a recently issued Notice of Real Estate Assessment Change, the assessor can generally be reached following field work after 3:00 pm weekdays either by phone or email.

Interim Assessments

Our office conducts field work throughout the year to appraise new construction, evaluate property transfers, and discover and update property record information to derive accurate and fair assessments. For safety while conducting field work, the assessor wears fluorescent and reflective clothing along with a county-issued name badge for identification; a county vehicle referencing “County Assessor” and high-visibility LED lighting are also utilized.

2021 Reassessment in Pulaski County is Now Complete

On March 22nd, 2021, the Board of Supervisors set the 2021 real estate tax rate at $0.74 per $100 of assessed value. Questions or concerns related to the tax rate should be made to your elected BOS member; their information can be found on the County website: County website.

Appeals with the reassessment team (Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group) were completed December 9th, 2020. Hearings with the Board of Equalization concluded March 25th, 2021 and November 10th, 2021.

If you failed to appeal with either the reassessment team or the BOE, a final recourse exists by petitioning the Pulaski County Circuit Court (VA Code § 58.1-3370). For more information, please contact the County Assessor with the Commissioner of Revenue’s Office by phone at (540) 980-7753 or email at assessor@pulaskicounty.org The County Assessor, under the authority of VA Code § 58.1-3981, can make changes to the land records when factual errors exist. Your Property Record Card should be examined and any such errors promptly communicated to the Assessor. This may or may not result in an assessment change.

If the property owner believes changes by reassessment, the BOE, and/or the County Assessor are insufficient, their final appeal will need to be made with the Circuit Court (VA Code § 58.1-3984). They can be reached at (540) 980-7825 for more information on the legal requirements.
