Property Tax Notices are typically generated and mailed out in the middle of September.
If you purchase a property, or record a deed on or after January 1, you will not receive a tax bill in your name.
Taxpayers are responsible for payment of taxes regardless of billing. This means that if you did not receive a tax bill for any reason, taxes are still due, and if paid late, interest will be collected. If you do not receive your tax bill by the end of September, contact the Treasurer's Office to request a copy. Statements are not mailed for the second half of taxes. The tax bill mailed in September is the only notice you will receive. Please retain it for your records.
