Tax Assessment & Claims

The Tax Assessment office is responsible for evaluating residential, agricultural and commercial properties and placing market value assessments on them. It is through this department that equitable evaluations are established on all real estate in Bedford County.

The Tax Claims Bureau is responsible for the collection of all delinquent real estate taxes in the county as well as 'rollback' taxes incurred through Act 319 of the State Legislature, commonly known as the 'Clean and Green' program.

If you need to make a tax claim payment either use a credit card or e-checks online or make an appointment for a cash payment.

We are pleased to announce the arrival of our new web application, the Bedford County Online Parcel Viewer.
