The Code of Virginia mandates that a general reassessment be conducted by the County at least every six years. Reassessment is the process by which the assessed value of real estate property held by citizens, businesses, and industries within the County boundaries is revised to reflect fair market value. Adjustments in value are necessary to reflect the current real estate market in order to distribute the tax burden among the citizens of Madison County. 

Madison County selected Wingate Appraisal Service of Roanoke, Virginia as the Assessor for the 2019 general reassessment of real estate values. In accordance with State requirements, Wingate Appraisal appraisers inspected every parcel in the County to establish the current fair market value of the real estate. The 2019 Reassessment was effective January 1, 2019.
