Due Dates - 2021 Deferral Option


Property taxes are normally due on July 31st of each year, and penalties on all outstanding balances are levied on August 1st of each year.  In 2020, Council authorized a payment deferral option to assis residents, who experienced financial challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  For 2021, Council has again approved a deferred payment date for the 2021 property taxes to September 30, 2021.  Penalties will be applied on October 1, 2021.  Property owners may pay their taxes at any time during the deferral period, and may opt in or out of the TIPP program, as needed.
