Property Taxes

2018 Property Taxes

The 2018 Property Tax Notices have been mailed out. Please be advised that NEW OWNERS are responsible for unpaid taxes.

The DUE DATE for paying your 2018 taxes is 4:00pm Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018.

After that date, a 10% penalty will be added to all unpaid taxes INCLUDING unclaimed Home Owner Grants. Postmarks are not accepted as date of payment. If you are unable to pay your taxes prior to the due date, if eligible, you should apply for the Home Owner Grant to avoid penalty on that portion of the taxes.

Property owners who have not received their tax notice by the second week of June should contact the City Hall in order to avoid late payment penalties. New property owners are responsible for payment of their annual property taxes by the due date to avoid penalty, whether or not they receive a Property Tax Notice.
