The Tax Collector collects payments of personal, real estate, and motor vehicle property taxes. These taxes are levied in July and are based on the value of the property (determined by the Assessor) as of October 1 of the previous year multiplied by the mill rates set in the annual adopted budget. For example: the taxes levied in July 2009 are based on the October 1, 2008 values multiplied by the mill rate adopted in June 2009.
The taxes levied are generally due in two equal installments. However, all motor vehicle taxes and property tax bills which are less than or equal to $100 are due and payable in a single installment. Each installment has a one-month grace period in which the taxes may be paid without incurring interest charges. For example, and installment that is due on July 1 will not accrue interest unless it is paid after August 1. Interest on delinquent accounts accrues at 1.5% per month (simple interest, not compounded).
