Residential tax bills are sent out annually in early January. A tax bill gives a detailed description of a property’s tax account including:
- assessment codes
- property location
- type of property
- water and sewer charges
- outstanding balances and associated interest (if applicable)
- the amount of taxes due for the current year
Municipal taxes are due upon receipt. In 2018 any current balance remaining after February 28, 2018 will be charged interest at a rate of 10.5% per year. Interest is applied monthly to all overdue balances retroactive to the billing date.
For 2018, taxpayers can receive a 1% discount applied to the current year’s tax balance if those taxes are paid by February 28, 2018.
