To align with our current banking service contract, bills are now mailed directly to the processing center. This reduces the processing time to 3 to 5 business days. The current contract saves about $32,000 annually in various fees.
Taxpayers can always pay their bills in person at the Treasurer's Office at Hanover Courthouse and can pay personal property and real estate bills online via
To invite wireless internet providers into the county, Hanover County created an incentive-based rate structure for use of its communications towers. It currently has a memorandum of understanding with one company about leasing space on its communications towers and serving county residents in rural areas in both the eastern and western sides of the County, and that work is underway.
Hanover County does not provide internet services but encourages all providers to offer these services to residents and businesses throughout the county.

Zoning regulates the use of property. All property in the county is located within one of several zoning districts, which govern how property may be used. Zoning districts are generally classified for residential, business, or industrial use. The county’s mapping system can be used as a guide to determine the zoning classification of an individual property.
Also, a few systems have plastic filters permitted by the Virginia Department of Health. These systems are also not required to pump-out every 5 years because they routinely require more frequent maintenance. If you have an approved plastic filter, you may submit evidence and request being removed from the program. The Virginia Department of Health does not have a list of systems with approved plastic filters. Regular pumping and maintenance will save you money and protect the environment.
Plastic filters require regular maintenance to keep them from clogging and backing sewage into your home. Routine maintenance typically includes the removal and proper disposal of non-biodegradable solids from the filter and then hosing down the filter over your septic tank to return the filtered solids to the tank for additional treatment. While not mandatory, the Virginia Department of Health still recommends that systems with plastic filters pump have their septic tanks pumped regularly to maintain peak system performance and extend the life of your drainfield.
