Real Estate and Personal Property Taxes are due by March 31st; they become delinquent on April 1st.

Real Estate Taxes: Beginning April 1st, interest will accrue at 3%.  On May 1st, a $6 advertising fee is added. If real estate taxes remain unpaid, a tax certificate will be sold at the tax certificate sale on May 31, 2017, resulting in additional charges and your property may be sold at a future date.

Personal Property Taxes:  Beginning April 1st, interest will accrue at 1.5% per month, plus a $10.00 collection fee. On May 1st a $3 advertising fee is added. If personal property taxes remain unpaid, a warrant may be issued authorizing the tax collector to levy and seize personal property, resulting in warrant fees and court costs, and your property may be sold at a public auction to satisfy the unpaid taxes.

Delinquent taxes must be paid in the form of cash, cashier's check, treasurer's check, title company check, attorney's trust account check, money order, debit card or certified funds and by credit card (if paying online only).
