Pay Your Tax Bill

The 1st installment of the 2019-2020 property tax bill was due postmarked by Dec 10, 2019.  Reminder letters have been generated for those 1st installments that have not been paid.  If paying a delinquent 1st installment with the 2nd installment, please include the 10% penalty and a $3 cost on the delinquent 1st installment and make sure to pay online by 11:59pm April 10, 2020 or mail with a timely April 10, 2020 postmark. If mailing close to that date, we encourage a hand-stamped postmark to ensure that it is received as timely.
