Property Tax Payment

Property tax bills are mailed out every year late August, early September and are due on or before November 16th of each year.  Payments, full or partial, can be made as soon as you receive the bill, however interest will be applied monthly after the due date if not paid in full.  A 5% penalty will be applied every 120 days from the due date (20% maximum).  Payment good through date applies to CURRENT YEAR interest only.  Not receiving your tax bill does NOT eliminate any interest or penalties.

Payments MUST be in our office by Nov. 16 or postmarked by USPS only.  No metered mail or certified bulk mail be accepted as proof of mailing.  Bills are mailed to the Jan.1 owner and not the mortgage company.  If you have an escrow account through your mortgage company send the mortgage company a copy of your bill.  If you have sold your property, please return the bill along with a copy of the Settlement Statement within 90 days from the due date.

Tax Returns & Assessment Appeals

Taxpayers are required to file a tax return between January 1 through April 1 for all properties they purchased during the previous year. This assures the property owner that they will get the assessment and tax bills in a timely manner and at the correct address. This is done in the Tax Assessor’s Office.A tax return is not required unless assessed changes are made to the property that would increase or decrease the value of the property.  Tax returns on personal property are filed with the Board of Assessors.

Appeals are filed with the Tax Assessor’s Office

If the owner thinks the value is too high for their property, the property owner may declare a value and this would start the appeal process. The Board of Assessors would then mail an assessment notice in the spring either accepting the revised value or leaving the value the same; the property owner would then have 45 days to appeal their assessment.  More information on please contact the Tax Assessor’s Office at 770-288-7999
