Office of the Commissioner of The Revenue City Hall - Portsmouth, Virginia

Franklin D. Edmondson, MCR – At Your Service …

As a “Taxpayer Advocate”, our office operates as the chief assessment office for the City of Portsmouth. It is our pleasure to process, among other valuable services, Business Licenses, Business Personal Property Accounts, Excise Tax Accounts, Personal Property Accounts, Residential Sales Permits and State Income Tax Returns annually.

While we support the Real Estate Tax Relief and the Real Estate Tax Freeze Programs for qualifying citizens, we do not perform Real Estate Tax Assessments, as that responsibility, under City Code, is assigned to the City’s Real Estate Assessor’s Office (757-393-8631).

In addition to the services noted above, we welcome your visit to our DMV Select Office on the first floor of the Portsmouth City Hall Building. As we work to expand our service commitment to you, if we can be of further assistance, please feel free to call on us. We are honored to be … At Your Service.

Elected to Serve the People of Portsmouth, Virginia, I remain
