Tax Collector

What We Do

The Tax Collector's Office provides billing and collection of real estate, personal property, and motor vehicle taxes. Taxes are billed and collected semi-annually on real estate and annually on motor vehicles and personal property.


It's Almost That Time Of Year Again!
The budget process is done and it is almost time to send out tax bills for the upcoming fiscal year. The mill rate only went up a fraction of a mill (0.39) to a rate of 27.42. That equates to $27.42 per $1000.00 of value. Tax bills will be mailed at the very end of June, you should receive them on July 1.
Tax bills for this year will begin with the number 2017; this number refers to the grand list year in which your property's assessment was calculated. It does not refer to the calendar year in which the bills are collected. While tax bills are due as of July 1, you have until August 1 to pay your tax without penalty.

You must wait until July 1 to pay your tax bill, the tax office does not accept early payments for the new tax year.


Removal of a DMV Hold

In order to obtain an immediate release of a DMV hold on a registration, your delinquent tax bill(s) must be paid in cash or a bank check. Payment by personal check will result in a 10 day hold before the release is processed; online payments will result in a 3-5 business day hold.
