Important Dates Note

If the due date falls on a holiday or weekend, payments will be accepted on the following business day with no delinquent interest.

December

The commissioners certify the tax dollar warrant for tax collection for the previous tax year. This establishes the mill levy for the property tax collection. Property taxes are collected in arrears.

Prepayment of taxes due next year must be received by noon on the last business day of the month. Payments received after noon on the last business day will bear a receipt date of the following year.

If paying only the first-half of the taxes, they are due by February 28th unless it's a Leap Year then they are due on the 29th; we do accept U.S. Postmarks.

April

If paying the taxes in full, they are due April 30th; we do accept U.S. Postmarks.

The second-half tax notices are mailed mid month to all property owners that paid only the first half.

If the first half of the taxes were paid in February, the second-half payment is due by June 15th; we do accept U.S. Postmarks.

July

Delinquent tax notices are mailed.

August

If a lien has been sold for unpaid prior year tax, the tax buyer will be allowed to pay current tax, thus adding to that lien certificate. To avoid this, your payment must be received by this date. This is called the endorsement process.

September

Real and personal property taxes that remain unpaid will be listed in a newspaper publication four weeks before the tax lien sale and advertised for three consecutive weeks. The first publication is printed in mid-September.

Personal property taxes that remain unpaid will be listed in a newspaper publication sometime during the month of September.

October

Personal property taxes that remain unpaid will be subject to distraint, seizure and sale to satisfy taxes due.

The annual tax lien sale is held in October. See tax lien sale for more information.

Redemption of Tax Liens

Tax lien payments must be received by the treasurer's office on or before the last business day of the month in which they are paid; postmarks are not accepted. New interest accrues monthly.
