Tax Collection

Tax Bills are mailed in early to mid November.  The first half of taxes is due by December 20th.  If the first half is not paid by then it begins to accrue interest.

If the first half is paid by December 20th, the second half will be due by May 10th of the following year. 

Real Estate Taxes:

After December 20th and before May 10th, the first half payment plus interest can be paid.  If payment is not made by May 10th, the full tax plus interest must be paid.  There is no longer the option of paying just the first half.

If taxes are due and unpaid for three years, the property is subject to a Tax Foreclosure suit by the County.  The property can then be sold at public auction.  Anyone that has delinquent real estate taxes in the County cannot bid at these auctions.

Personal Property Taxes:

The first half tax must be paid by December 20th.  After that date, the full amount of Personal Property taxes are due plus interest.  Full unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in March.  If the first half taxes are paid in December, the second half is due May 10th.  Second half unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in June.
