Any resident unable to pay their taxes in full by Jan. 6 may make partial payments beginning this month. The Tax Office will work with individuals who need to make payments throughout the year; however, a payment agreement must be reached prior to the past due date of Jan. 6. It is the responsibility of the property owner to make monthly payments on time. Failure to do so will void the agreement and begin the process of collection enforcement.

Once any bill starts to accrue interest, bank attachments are performed first, followed by wage garnishments, foreclosures and other remedies allowed by law. 
The Tax Collection staff is more than willing to answer any questions, and may be contacted by calling 997-8270.
