Property Tax Payment Options

Pay your property taxes and apply for the Home Owner Grant before the first business day in July every year to avoid a penalty. We recommend paying through your bank or signing up for monthly prepayment to take the stress out of taxes.

Prepayment Plan

The Property Tax Prepayment Plan is an optional payment plan which provides an opportunity for taxpayers to make 10 equal monthly prepayments for the follow year's estimated property taxes. For more information, visit our Prepayment programs page.
