Explanation of your real estate tax bill:

 

Billing is twice a year, bills are sent out by the end of May for the July bill and by the end of October for the December bill giving the taxpayer at least 30 days to pay. The day after the due date the bill is considered late and 8% interest starts accruing.

The July bill covers from April 1st - September 30

1. The July bill reflects 1/2 year calculation which shows on the tax breakdown. The July bill is calculated by taking the prior year total and dividing in half.

2. The July bill is an "estimated" bill, calculated with the tax rate that was set by the state in October 2019.

The December bill covers October 1- March 31

1. In October the state sets the new tax rate and the December bill adjusts to the new rate and deducts any payments that were made in July and/or during the year.The December bill is considered the final bill.

2. The December bill reflects the new tax rate for 2020 and is an entire year calculation which shows on the tax breakdown, thus $22.67

Please note: Liens can only be paid by the property owner or the Agent of the property owner. If you are an Agent you will need to visit the Tax Office and fill out a form stating that the property owner is allowing you to make payments on their behalf. The property owner will have to come to the Tax Office and we will witness their signature. Thank you.
