For those who choose to receive paper bills, please put your bill in a safe place so that you can find it for the Fall Installment and for your Income Tax Filing next year.
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.
