Tiffany Boyle, Commissioner of the Revenue

Tiffany Boyle was appointed Commissioner of the Revenue, January 1, 2018. As a mom, career business woman and a public servant, Boyle wanted to make a bigger impact in improving the lives of her neighbors in Newport News, a city of which she’s lived for more than 20 years. 

With a background in the public and private sector as an employee and entrepreneur, Boyle brings a unique perspective, a new approach, and an extensive array of experiences to the C.O.R office.  

Since Day 1, Boyle began adapting and implementing changes to internal and operational policies, supporting the core values of which she governs herself by.  She is also responsible for overseeing one of the largest budgets in the city in addition to numerous functions including taxation assessment, amendment, defense and discovery. 

Boyle’s Community outreach efforts are swiftly garnering attention statewide. Shortly after taking office, Boyle constructed the “Commissioners and Cans food and fundraiser” to help eradicate the food insecurity issues within the city limits. Since 2011, food insecurity in Newport News has maintained at nearly 17% annually. Since Boyle’s implementation of “Commissioner and Cans” that number has dropped to less than 11% to date.
