Preliminary 2020 tax bills will be mailed by end of May 2020 and due July 1, 2020. This preliminary tax bill is based on prior year tax rate of $18.95 and barring any assessment changes will be equivalent to one half of the 2019 total tax bill.
Interest begins accruing after the due date at 8% annually.
If you made a prepayment, it was applied to this bill. Any credit balance for prepayments will be carried forward to 2020. Any overpayment not designated as a prepayment will be refunded by year end 2020.
The historical breakdown of the Property Tax Rate can be found on the Tax Rate History link to the left.
The Tax Collector is responsible for the timely notification of the annual tax rate, mailing of semi-annual tax bills and collection of tax revenues.
