Payment of Taxes
Tax bills are mailed once a year. They are due quarterly: February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. There is a 10 day grace period each quarter. If the 10th of the month falls on a weekend or a holiday, the grace period will be extended to the next working day. Payment can be made in person, by mail; cash, check or money order is accepted or online. If you mail in your payment and would like a receipt, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope. You can also choose to pay online by a Checking Account ACH Payment (e-Check) or by a Credit Card Payment, making your tax payment online is fast, easy, and safe. Payment is processed the day it is received in the office. Please note that postmark dates are not accepted and interest will be applied. Interest is charged at 8% for the first $1500.00 of delinquency and 18% on the remaining amount. Once interest is at 18% it will remain so until the entire balance is paid in full. If payment is after the grace period interest is retroactive to the due date of the 1st of the quarter. Also, If there is a balance at the end of the year in the amount of $10,000 including interest or more that is due, an additional 6% year end penalty be applied. You are responsible for your real estate taxes whether or not you have a bill in your possession. You can call the office for the amount due and if you need a copy of your bill we will prepare one for you.
