When are property taxes due? What are the late fees?

The tax bills go out around October 1st of each year and are due upon receipt. Payment for current taxes must be made by January 31st to avoid paying penalties and interest. The taxes become delinquent on February 1st of the following year in which they were imposed and are subject to penalty and interest and possible legal action. Penalties are as follows:

  • February: 7%
  • March: 9%
  • April: 11%
  • May: 13%
  • June: 15%

Attorney fees for delinquent taxes are added on the 1st day of July.

Note: If an installment payment is late, a 6% penalty will be added plus 1% interest for every month delinquent.
