Hours of Operation

Our office is available to the public from 8:30  AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday for in-person transactions.


Due to significant interior flooding in Charlottesville City Hall, the Commissioner of the Revenue’s office is closed to in-person customer service until further notice. Our in-person customer service has now re-located to CitySpace, which is just above Parks & Recreation on Mall-side of the Market Street Parking Garage.

  • As always, business tax filings and payments can be made via US mail, online or at any of the drop-boxes located on 6th street, 7th street or the Drive-up box by the Key Rec Center.
