Receiving your Tax Bill:
Property owners will receive a tax bill by postal mail twice a year. The first bill or "Interim Tax Bill" is issued in February and is based on 50% of the previous year's taxes. The second bill, the "Final Tax Bill" is issued in July. These tax bills will be sent, at minimum, 21 days prior to the due date. It is important to make sure that we always have your current mailing address on record so that you receive your tax bills and do not incur penalties for late payments. If you do not receive your tax bill please let us know.
If you are on a pre-authorized payment plan, or a mortgage plan, this will be noted on the tax bill that you receive.
