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.
Delinquent Tax Bills Have Been Sent To Collection
All delinquent tax bills for Motor Vehicle Taxes and Personal Property Taxes have been sent to the Rossi Law Office Collection Agency. This office makes several attempts at collecting delinquent taxes and notifications are sent alerting taxpayers as to their status.
You would have received the original bill at the beginning of July, a delinquent statement at the beginning of August, and a Demand Notice at the beginning of September. Additional fees are assessed when collection agencies are engaged. Payments of delinquent taxes can still be made online and in the Tax Office as well as directly through the Rossi Law Office. Collection fees are applied on all payments.
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.
Payments through our authorized collection agency, Rossi Law Office, can be made by credit card without additional credit card fees. There is a 24 hour hold on ALL payments made to the collection agency. Please take this into consideration if you need a DMV release.
