Back Tax Notation on Bill
If the notation “Back Taxes” appears on your bill, call the tax office for updated interest charges on what you already owe. Back taxes and interest must be paid in full before payment on current bills can be accepted. If you have back taxes they must be paid with cash, bank check or money order.
Penalty for Returned Checks
If your check is returned unpaid by the bank, an additional fee of $20.00 will be added to your balance due. In addition, you may be charged a penalty by your bank.
Penalty for Late Payment
If payment is not made within one month of the due date, the installment will become delinquent and subject to interest at the rate of 1.5% per month from the due date. As of Aug. 1, 2022 and Feb. 1, 2023, a total of 3% interest is due on the taxes unpaid from the original due date of either July 1, 2022 or January 1, 2023. AS THE OWNER OF TAXABLE PROPERTY, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO SEE THAT TAXES ARE PAID WHEN DUE.
