Current year Secured Property Tax bill is considered “Defaulted” if not paid by 5:00 p.m. on June 30th of the fiscal year in which it is due.
I have Delinquent taxes for prior years. Where can I find this information on your web site?
Our web site provides comprehensive information on all taxes. You should be able to find Prior Year Delinquent tax information when you key in your parcel number. You may also key in your Address, Tax Collector Reference No., Tax Year, Assessment No., Tax Lien No., Watercraft or Aircraft Registration Nos. for Unsecured tax information.
What happens if I’m paying my secured property taxes after June 30th?
After June 30th, a $15.00 Redemption Fee is added and an additional 1.5% penalty is calculated on the base amount and added at the beginning of each month until the delinquency is paid in full.
What else happens if I do not pay my current year property taxes on time?
Properties become subject to the Tax Collector’s Power to Sell at 12:01 a.m. on July 1, after five or more years have elapsed since the property became delinquent.
Can I arrange a Payment Plan for the unpaid secured property taxes?
Payment plans are only available on secured property tax bills once they’ve fallen into the category of “Prior Year”, in other words after the end of our fiscal year, June 30th.
Will my credit be affected if I can’t pay my Property Taxes?
The Tax Collector’s office files a “Power to Sell” after July 1 of the fifth year since taxes defaulted. The Tax Collector’s office files no other documents until that time.
What should I do if I can’t afford to make any payments right now?
Once your taxes become delinquent, you may start a 5 Pay Plan for your delinquent taxes as long as your taxes are not subject to the Power to Sell. You must wait until after July 1 to start a payment plan. (Payment plans are not available for current year taxes.)
