Assessed Value of your property
Any questions concerning your assessment should be directed to the Tax Assessor. The Collector is responsible for the billing and collection of taxes only.
Your Annual Property Tax Bill
Your annual property tax bill reflects the total annual taxes on the upper portion of the bill. The attached stubs reflect the second ½ of the current year and the 1st ½ of the upcoming year. Adding the stubs together will not show the annual taxes due. The tax bill is calculated when the tax rate for the year is struck. ( normally in June) The ¼ due August and November will equal the balance due based on the new rate after the payments you made in Feb and May have been deducted. The payments due for Feb and May of the following year will always equal ½ of the prior year taxes as a preliminary tax until the rate is struck.
