2020 Tax Mail Out Error
Please note that an error has been made on the 2020 Interim Property Tax Bill Inserts that were mailed out this week, January 17th, 2020.
The February Installment due date on the insert reads Friday February 28, 2020 which is incorrect.
The correct due date should read Thursday February 27, 2020.
This error will not monetarily affect residents as we do not apply penalties and interest to tax accounts until the first business day of the following month, therefore penalties will not be added until Monday, March 2, 2020.
