Real Estate Taxes

Overview

Real estate taxes are generally due on February 5 for the first half billing and July 20 for the second half billing. If the due date falls on a holiday or a weekend, the due date will be extended to the next working day. Real estate taxes are mailed out semi-annually and are always one year in arrears.

If you have an escrow account for taxes through your mortgage company, your tax bill should be requested by and sent directly to your mortgage company. The mortgage companies normally send us tax bill request listings throughout the year but if you receive the tax bill and it should be sent to your mortgage company, please check with your mortgage company to see if they wish you to forward the bill to them. Please don't hesitate to call us to check the status of your taxes or to confirm that your tax bill is being sent to the mortgage company.

Change of Address

If you should pay your mortgage off or refinance with another company, please contact us with the new billing address. Delinquent tax bills are mailed in August and are due in September. The County Auditor will then prepare a delinquent tax list for publication in the local newspaper for those taxpayers remaining delinquent after the delinquent bill deadline has passed.
