Real Estate Taxes: Beginning April 1st, interest will accrue at 3%. On May 1st, advertising ($6) is added. If real estate taxes remain unpaid, a tax certificate will be sold at the tax certificate sale on May 29, 2020, resulting in additional charges, and your property may be sold at a future date.

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.
