Real and personal property taxes become delinquent after January 5th. Interest begins January 6th at a rate of 2% for the first month and 3/4 of 1% will be added each month thereafter until paid. Other costs and charges may also be added to the amount you owe.

Payments submitted by mail are deemed received based on the date shown on the postmark affixed only by the U.S. Postal Service. If the postmark is not affixed by the U.S. Postal Service or the postmark cannot be read, payment will be deemed to be received when it is received in the tax office. It is to your advantage to mail your payment several days in advance of the past due date.
