Annual tax bills are due September 30, a discount of 1% is given for payments received in July and a discount of 1/2% is given for payments received in August.
  • First semi-annual installments are due September 30.
  • Second semi-annual installments are due December 31.
  • Interest begins to accrue on all unpaid balances on October 1.
  • Supplemental and revised tax bills are due 30 days from the time of issue.
Payments received by the Treasury Department office via the U.S. Postal Service that are postmarked by the last calendar day of any given month will be credited to the account as of the postmark date, so long as the payments are received within three (3) calendar days of the last calendar day of the month.

Any payments received on the fourth (4th) calendar day of the month and beyond will be credited as received the month following the postmark date, with any and all additional interest and fees accrued and applied to the account.

Payments made in person at the Treasury Department office must be made by the close of business on the last business day of the month to be credited to the account as received in that month.
