TAX AMOUNTS ARE DUE AND PAYABLE FROM OCTOBER 1 THROUGH THE LAST DAY OF FEBRUARY TO AVOID PENALTY. PENALTY BEGINS MARCH 1 AT 1.5% EACH MONTH THAT THE TAX GOES UNPAID.

ONLY CASH OR CHECK PAYMENTS CAN BE MADE IN THE TRUSTEE OFFICE. CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD PAYMENTS CAN BE MADE ONLINE.

PARTIAL PAYMENTS: The Trustee Office does accept partial payments. No minimum payment is required. Making a partial payment will not keep a tax from being turned over if it is not paid in full by the turnover date. Penalty and interest will be added to any unpaid portion of the tax that is not paid in full by the delinquency date.

TAX RELIEF PROGRAM: Tax Relief is for anyone 65 or older, anyone who is approved for disability, or anyone who qualifies as a 100% permanent and total disabled veteran or widow/widower of a disabled veteran. You must come into the Trustee Office to apply for Tax Relief – and your signature is required each year for renewals. You must own and live on the property to apply for tax relief. Income limits do apply for the elderly and disabled. If you are interested in signing up for tax relief, please come by the trustee office as soon as possible to fill out an application after you receive your current tax bill statement. Deadline date to apply for Tax Relief is April 1st. (Other restrictions may apply.)
