Martinsville's City Treasurer is responsible for collecting taxes, accepting payments for city utilities, landfill fees and business licenses, issuing dog licenses, sale of cigarette tax stamps, collection of state and estimated income taxes and accountability for funds paid to the city.
The treasurer, a constitutional officer, is elected every four years. Treasurer Cindy Dickerson has served in that capacity since February 2009.
The office offers the convenience of in-person, in-office payments including major credit cards. A drive-through window is available for customers who cannot come into the office but have the bill for payment. A lock-box is also located adjacent to the drive-through for payments.
You can make inquiry and payment for Real Estate Taxes, Personal Property Taxes, Business License, General Bills, and Utility Bills through Martinsville Citizen Self Service using eCheck or credit card. There is a $.50 cent fee for eCheck processing. The convenience fee on the credit card is based on amount of the transaction. The minimum fee for the credit card is $3.00.
The office, including the drive-through, is open from 8:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. The office is located at 55 W. Church St., Suite 104, Martinsville, Virginia 24114 in Room 104 of the Municipal Building.
In addition to collecting taxes, the office also collects utility payments on behalf of the city. Requests for service, extensions, and other utility amendments must be processed through the Utility Billing Office.
