Reston, VA Homeowners Fund Small Tax District 5

Reston, VA Homeowners Fund Small Tax District 5. This extra tax is paid as part of your annual property tax bill, so many residents are either not aware of the tax or are not sure of its purpose.

In 1975, The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors created this tax district  to fund the Reston Community Center (RCC) at Hunters Woods.  Since then, a second location of the RCC has been added at Lake Anne Plaza.

What do Reston, VA homeowners who fund Small Tax District 5 pay?  From the Fairfax County Website I got the following information:

Small District 5 Hunter Mill
(Reston Community Center)
On each $100.00 of assessed valuation of real estate within the boundary of Small District 5 Hunter
Mill in the County, the tax rate shall be ............................................................................................... $0.047
*Tax will be levied and collected in two semi-annual tax billings.

In the recent discussions concerning the possible construction of a new Fairfax County recreation center, the possibility of having Small Tax District 5 fund the new center was considered.  I wrote several blogs about this recreation center,
Reston Residents Proposed Fairfax County Recreation Center  and  Browns Chapel in Reston is no Longer the Proposed Site for Rec Center, for which a location search continues. The proposed location at Browns Chapel in Reston is no longer being considered.

The members of Small District 5 are the Fairfax County citizens who vote in the Hunter Mill District, represented by Kathy Hudgins. As a result, Reston, VA homeowners fund Small Tax District 5 almost exclusively. There are other Small Tax Districts within Fairfax County, most of which support community or recreation centers.

I LOVE Reston!  If we'd ever had occasion to move to Northern Virginia, that's the community we would have chosen.  In fact, my daughter did when she first finished grad school, before work took her to Baltimore. 

Great information for local residents and home buyers in Tax Distrct 5.
