What happens if I don’t make my payment on time?

Property taxes become delinquent May 1st for first-half and November 1st for second-half.  

  • Interest accrues on delinquencies at 1% per month on the full year amount of taxes and/or assessments owing.  
  • All real and personal property taxes where current year's taxes are more than $50 may be paid in half with any applicable interest only through October 30th; on October 31st, those taxes are due in full.  All other personal property taxes where current year's taxes are less than $50, must have 1st half paid by April 30th to avoid Distraint and associated costs.

Real property foreclosure begins May 1st for real property taxes/assessments delinquent 3 or more years.  Collection fees will be assessed during this process.
