We are still processing some on time payments bearing an on time USPS postmark.

LATE PAYMENT/PENALTIES.  Our Web Site will not show late penalties incurred on November 14 for approximately 30 days.  If there are no prior delinquencies, a five percent (5%) penalty will be added if the installment is paid within thirty (30) days after the due date.  A ten (10%) penalty will be added if an installment of the tax bill is not paid within thirty (30) calendar days after the due date or there are prior delinquencies. 

TAX SALE PROPERTIES. If your property went up for bid on the October 24, 2017 Tax Sale, you MUST REDEEM your property through the Auditor's Office and therefore CANNOT pay on-line.  Your property WILL NOT display on our payment site but it will display on our history site.

ALL taxpayers receive a bill.  If your mortgage company requests one, we will also provide them your tax information.

Before you dial, what is your question concerning?
Every year along with your tax bill there is a Comparison Statement (TS-1A) which compares your Assessments, Deductions, Additional Fees, and the Tax Rates from this year to last.  Please review this BEFORE CALLING.  Identify what has changed.  This will direct you to the office that can help you with that change.  This Comparison Statement may not answer all of your questions, but it will most likely direct you to the correct office to call.
