  • Important Dates to Know from the Treasurer’s Office

     

    Note: If the due date falls on a holiday or weekend, payments will be accepted on the following business day with no delinquent interest.

    December

    The commissioners certify the tax dollar warrant for tax collection for the previous tax year. This establishes the mill levy for the property tax collection. Property taxes are collected in arrears.

    Prepayment of taxes due next year must be received by noon on the last business day of the month. Payments received after noon on the last business day will bear a receipt date of the following year.  

    February

    The first-half tax payment is due; the treasurer’s office must receive payment - or it must be postmarked - by February 29.

    April

    The full tax payment is due; the treasurer’s office must receive payment – or it must be postmarked - by the April 30. 

    May

    The second-half tax notices are mailed to all property owners that paid the first half.

    June

    The second-half tax payment is due; the treasurer’s office must receive payment - or it must be postmarked - by the June 15. 

    July

    Delinquent tax notices are mailed.

    August

    If a lien has been sold for unpaid prior year tax, the tax buyer will be allowed to pay current tax, thus adding to that lien certificate. To avoid this, your payment must be received by this date. This is called the endorsement process. 

    September

    Real and personal property taxes that remain unpaid will be listed in a newspaper publication four weeks before the tax lien sale and advertised for three consecutive weeks. The first publication is printed in mid-September.

    Personal property taxes that remain unpaid will be listed in a newspaper publication sometime during the month of September. 

    October

    Personal property taxes that remain unpaid will be subject to distraint, seizure and sale to satisfy taxes due.

    The annual tax lien sale is held in October. See tax lien sale for more information. 

    Redemption of Taxes

    Tax redemption payments must be received by the treasurer's office on or before the last business day of the month.
