September 1, 2016 is the deadline for discounted first-half of the year tax collections. Each year about this time the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office’s Tax Division sees an increase in the volume of tax payers at its counters. Last year we created new parking options to help tax-payers get in and out of the courthouse more easily, and the same measure will be repeated next week.
The right lane of Virginia Street in front of the Kanawha County Courthouse will be closed to traffic and available for short-term parking for those paying taxes. The closure will only apply to the block between Goshhorn and Court Streets. A Deputy Sheriff will be on hand to monitor parking and keep the lane clear of traffic.
The lane will be closed to traffic from 9:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., leaving it open during morning and evening rush hours. This change will be in effect the following days:
Tuesday, August 29, 2016
Wednesday, August 30, 2016
The Tax Division’s courthouse office is located at 409 Virginia Street East. The office is just inside that courthouse entrance, through the first doors on the right.
We recognize the limitations of short-term parking close to the Kanawha County Courthouse, and hope this helps tax-payers more efficiently conduct their business. Kanawha County also has a parking garage accessible on Goshhorn Street between Virginia and Quarrier Streets for those who anticipate needing more time.
