Property Taxes

Did you know you can make partial payments on your property taxes?  Partial payments are accepted for current or delinquent real estate or mobile home taxes. The amount of the partial payment must be greater than the late interest and costs due. Partial payments cannot be accepted for special assessments or tax sale redemption payments. You may make partial payments online, mailing it to your County Treasurer or stopping in to the office during regular hours.  Partial payments are an excellent way to make sure you taxes are paid on time while operating on a budget.
