When will I be billed for any improvements done to my property?
After construction is deemed complete, an assessment will be placed on the property for this improvement. The new assessment will cause additional bill(s) to be issued. A bill called an Added Assessment Bill will be sent out in October and will be due November 1st (4th qtr) of the current year, February 1st and May 1st of the following year. The added bill must be combined together with your original tax bill that was received in June/July. When the new bills are generated the following June, all taxes will be combined into one bill unless additional construction took place.
What if I have a lien on my property and want to pay it off?
We need a written request (72 hours prior) requesting a redemption figure, with a date that the Tax Office will receive the payment, along with the block/lot/lien number. This payment for redemption must be certified funds, cash, or money order.
