Tax Bills

Tax bills are mailed annually around July once the County establishes the tax rate. The Tax bills reflect the amounts due for 3rd Quarter (August), and 4th Quarter (November), of the current year, and the preliminary billing for the next year, 1st Quarter (February), and 2nd Quarter (May).

Payments can be made by cash, check or Discover / MasterCard or VISA. You may pay in person, by mail, or online. For your convenience there is a drop box in the parking lot with daily pickups at 8:30am.
