Important Information

If you have recently re-financed your mortgage and a payment was made at the closing, please double check that the payment was enough to cover the total tax due. If not, you are responsible to pay the remaining balance.

If you are a new owner and purchased your property after January 1, 2021, your name will not appear on the first line of the tax bill because you are not considered the record owner. Your name will appear on the second line as the care of owner. This indicates the Assessors' know there has been a change of ownership after the January 1st record date. Your name will appear as the record owner for next fiscal year.
