Real estate taxes are paid one year in arrears. (Example: In the year 2014, property owners will be paying 2013 real estate taxes.) Real estate tax notices are mailed to the property owners in either late December or early January. The first half of your real estate taxes are due by midnight on April 30th. The second half of your real estate taxes are due by midnight on October 31st. Any taxes that are paid late will be returned to the remitter with the proper amount of interest and/or penalties due (interest accrues monthly).
The Treasurer is required by law to conduct a tax certificate sale the third Monday in December each year. A tax certificate will be issued and sold on any property having delinquent taxes.
