Property Tax
The property tax each resident pays is calculated in proportion to the value of the real estate property they own. Determining the value of a property for taxation purposes is known as assessment. Assessed values are a means of fairly distributing the county tax burden and ensuring that each property owner pays a fair and equitable level of tax.

Receipts are posted on the date the payment is received at our office. Penalties are applied after the following dates:

  • 6% penalty on current balance only after August 31st.
  • 7% penalty on total outstanding balance after December 31st.
