Recommendation and Review

The Constitution of Virginia allows for specific local tax exemption. Prior to January 1, 2003, the General Assembly passed bills exempting an organization from local taxation and as of January 1, 2003, local elected officials were given the authority to make the determination.  Harrisonburg City Code §4-2-17 addresses local real and property exemption. Way to Go Inc, Harrisonburg Gift and Thrift Store Inc, Madison Automotive Apprentices Inc and Center for Health and Human Development are requesting exemption under this code.
