  • All tax statements are mailed July 15th.

  • What if I don’t receive my tax statements?

It is the responsibility of the taxpayer to make sure that they have received all of their tax statements.

  • Can I receive a discount on my taxes for paying early?

  • Yes, a 2.5% discount is given for all current 1st half payments made on or by September 1 and for all current 2nd half payments made on or by March 1 of the following year. This discount is already calculated on your tax statements.

  • When are taxes due?

  • To avoid interest charges, you must pay the 1st half by October 1 and the 2nd half by April 1st. Effective April 1st, your taxes are considered delinquent and must be paid in full. If taxes are not paid by April 30th, they will be published delinquent with publication fees and interest added.
