IMPORTANT DATES AND DEADLINES
DECEMBER 31 -- is the most important date to remember. All tax payments must be paid or postmarked by December 31 each year to avoid penalties and interest. Interest amount changes beginning of each month. Please refer to the payment chart on the tax statement or call the office for payoff.
MID-NOVEMBER -- current year tax bills mailed. If you do not receive a tax bill by December 1, please contact the Collector's office. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the obligation to pay taxes and applicable late fees.

MARCH 1 -- personal property assessments lists must be returned to the Assessor's office declaring tangible property owned as of January 1, otherwise, a tax bill will not be made for the current tax year.
