Adequate Facilities Tax Collection


Bedford County Schools Tax

An Adequate Facilities Tax is collected in The Bedford County Building Codes Department for all jurisdictions (including city jurisdictions).

Development Tax receipts or exemptions are required to be submitted to the City Code Departments prior to the issuance of any building permits in any jurisdiction.

This is a one-time tax assessed prior to obtaining your residential building permit. This tax is equal to $1.00 per heated square feet of living space and 100% of those funds are used to pay debt on Bedford County schools or build new schools.
