I have recently purchased property. What are my responsibilities as far as taxes are concerned?

Your annual tax bill is due in two equal installments. For FY20, taxes are due on October 18, 2019 and March 20, 2020. (Typically, Taxbills are due the 2nd Friday in September and March) Depending on when the change of ownership is placed on the tax roll, the tax bill will be sent to either the previous owner or to you. If you have not received a tax bill by the first of August or the first of February, please contact our office so that we may mail your bill. Please also contact the Assessor’s office to change the mailing address.

Interest will begin to accrue on delinquent taxes on October 18, 2019 and March 20, 2020. The Office of the Treasurer and Tax Collector cannot excuse penalties for late payments even if you did not receive a bill.
