Payment of Taxes:
Tax Notices are issued in August each year. Please keep in mind that we accept payments throughout the entire year. You may make plans for monthly or quarterly payments based on your owing amount from the previous year. Example: If you have had no changes to your property, you may assume the amount from the previous year and divide accordingly. Payments from January until taxes are levied will reflect as a credit on your Tax Notice. *Your owing amount may vary from year to year depending on land sales/improvements, mill rates & assessed values* You will receive an Assessment Notice earlier in the year if your value has changed - at this time, you will have the chance to appeal if desired.
