As a taxpayer, you have the responsibility to verify that payment is being made on the correct property description. The taxes amounts listed on the tax notice are levied on the property described at the top of the bill, left-hand side, and are for the indicated tax year.

Please note that failure to receive a tax bill or failure to deliver timely payment does not waive interest or penalty charges.

The billing and payment cycle for taxes is as follows:

  • Summer Taxes: Billed/Mailed on July 1; Due September 1.
  • Winter Taxes: Billed/Mailed on December 1; Due February 14.
