Property Taxes

Your Tax Bill


Your tax bill is issued in July each year. Taxes are subject to interest and penalty if not received by the date shown on the front of your bill. Real property taxes that remain unpaid by the second Monday in May will be sold to the highest bidder at the County's annual tax sale. Failure to receive a tax bill will not relieve the taxpayer from paying taxes, interest and penalty.

Assessment & Tax Rate


Your assessment and tax rate are shown on the front of your tax bill. To calculate your bill, multiply the assessment by the tax rate, divide by 100, add any charges - the result should equal the amount due.

To view your property assessment information, search the State's property assessment database State Search
