Notice of Outstanding Taxes have been mailed out

August 18, 2020

Property taxes for assessment classes 1, 2, 3, 9 (includes most residential and farm) were due July 2, 2020. A late penalty of 3% was applied on August 1 to outstanding taxes as of July 31, 2020.

Your Notice of Outstanding Taxes reflects a 3% penalty on overdue property taxes. Please remit your property tax payment by September 30 to avoid an additional 7% penalty. Unclaimed home owner grants will have the 3% penalty reversed if
claimed by September 30, 2020.
