Change in Ownership - The property tax records are updated by the Assessor's office and they are currently working on documents that were recorded in March of 2022. Taxes follow the property so once our records are updated we will notify the new owner. If you are the new owner and the records have not been transferred into your name, you can still pay the taxes.
