§ 58.1-3235. Removal of parcels from program if taxes delinquent.

A. If on April 1 of any year the taxes for any prior year on any parcel of real property that has a special assessment as provided for in this article are delinquent, the appropriate county, city, or town treasurer shall forthwith send notice of that fact and the general provisions of this section to the property owner by first-class mail.
