How do I file an appeal?

Virginia Code § 58.1-3983.1 Appeals and Rulings of Local Taxes, clarifies a taxpayer's appeal rights. A letter should be sent to the Commissioner of the Revenue's office stating your intention to appeal. Virginia Code § 58.1-3983.1 states that an appeal must be filed in good faith and sufficiently identify the tax periods covered by the challenged assessments, the amount in dispute, the remedy sought, each alleged error in the assessment, the legal grounds upon which the taxpayer relies and any other facts relevant to the taxpayer's position. Should the appeal be filed on behalf of another person or business, the appeal letter should also include evidence of the authority to file an appeal on behalf of the taxpayer.
