When are property taxes due?
Our tax year begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th. Real property and mobile home taxes are payable in 4 installments with due dates as follows:
1st Installment due on the 3rd Monday in August
2nd Installment due on the 1st Monday in October
3rd Installment due on the 1st Monday in January
4th Installment due on the 1st Monday in March
If a tax bill is $100 or less, the full amount is due on the 3rd Monday of August.
Personal Property taxes are billed in monthly cycles. They are due upon receipt and delinquent after 30 days.
What is a supplemental tax bill?A supplemental tax bill is for new construction on a property that was in place on July 1st, but was not assessed and billed on the original real estate tax bill due to the Assessor's Office having to close the tax rolls.
How are property taxes calculated?Property taxes are calculated by taking the current year tax rate and multiplying it by the assessed value. If that amount is greater than a 3% to 8% increase over the prior year's taxes, an abatement may be applied to limit the increase.
