General Tax Bill Information Taxes are billed twice a year (July and December) for both real and personal property. Bills are directed to either a homeowner or to a homeowner's mortgage company; therefore , it is very important for the homeowner to keep us informed if:
  • A refinancing has occurred and the mortgage company changes.
  • If the mortgage is paid off
  • If the mortgage is sold to another lender.
DO NOT RELY ON THE MORTGAGE COMPANY OR THE NEW HOMEOWNER TO RELAY INFORMATION CONCERNING YOUR PROPERTY. State law holds the homeowner entirely responsible for making sure taxes are paid. If you are responsible for paying your own taxes and have not received your summer tax bill by the end of the first week of July or your winter bill by the end of the first week of December, please contact the Treasurer's Office. We will be happy to provide you with a copy of your bill.
