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.
Happy New Year!!
With the new year comes the second installment of your real estate taxes and, if you purchased a new car after October 1, 2022, a partial year tax bill for that vehicle (what we call a Supplemental Motor Vehicle Tax Bill).
The Supplemental bill will cover the time from the month of the new vehicle purchase/registration through September 2023. If you transferred your license plates from the old car to the new car, you will see a credit for the prepaid taxes on the older vehicle.
You have through February 1 to make your payment without interest and the Tax Office will be open (weather permitting) on Saturday, January 27 from 9:00am – 12:00 for your convenience.
If you have sold, junked, or disposed of a vehicle…
do not forget to bring the requisite paperwork to the Assessor’s Office and, if required, cancel your registration at DMV. Active registrations will continue to generate tax bills!
IRS Payment Report
You will be able to get a payment report showing all of your tax payments
for the previous calendar year that you can use for preparing your income tax return.
See the link on the left-hand side of this web page.
Your online payment will not result in an immediate release of the DMV registration hold! Online payments do not post to your account for approximately 3 business days. For an immediate release, you need to pay your delinquent bills in cash or cash equivalent (cashier's check or money order).
