Tax Collector

NOTICE OF REM FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIEN TITLES - August 2022


Responsibilities

The Tax Collector bills and collects all property taxes as established by the Tax Assessor. For those property owners who refuse to pay their tax bills, the Tax Collector is responsible for enforcement procedures, up to and including the sale of a lien against the properties to which taxes are delinquent. Records are maintained in the Tax Office for these lien holders and lien redemptions are processed through the Tax Collector’s Office. The Tax collector verifies delinquent tax balances (tax searches) for credit checks and works with the real estate title companies involved in that process.

Tax Schedule

Taxes are billed quarterly and are due February 1st, May 1st, August 1st and November 1st.  There is a ten-day grace period for each quarter. Property tax bills are issued once each year usually during the month of July.  Each bill contains 4 coupons.  The August and November coupons are final bills and are due in the current year.  The February and May coupons are for the upcoming year.  They are preliminary estimates based on the total taxes paid for the prior year.

If you are selling your property, please remit any remaining unpaid portion of your tax bill to the new owner.
