Tax Rates

Harrisonburg's official motto is "The Friendly City." This is true in many ways, but especially in terms of the area's property taxes. Most buyers relocating from other areas simply can't believe how low our tax rates are!

The median price of a home in 2015 was $185,000. In the city, this would translate to an annual tax bill of $1,443 -- or about $120 per month. Below are the tax rates for the entire area.
