General Tax Bill Information
Taxes are billed twice a year (July and December) for both real and personal property. Summer taxes are billed on July 1 and are payable by September 1. Winter taxes are billed on December 1 and are payable by February 14. Bills are directed to both a homeowner and to a homeowner's mortgage company; therefore, it is very important for the homeowner to keep us informed if:
- A refinancing has occurred and a change in mortgage company is involved
- The mortgage was sold to another lender
- The mortgage has been paid off
- The home is sold
Do not rely on the mortgage company or the new or former lender to relay this information.
There is no such thing as too much information. State law holds the homeowner entirely responsible for making sure taxes are paid, so do what you can to see the tax bills are properly directed. If you are responsible for paying your own taxes, mark reminders on your calendar. If you have not received your summer tax bill by the end of the first week in July or your winter tax bill by the end of the first week in December, call the City Treasurer's Office. We will be happy to provide you with a copy. For further information, please contact the City Treasurer's Office at 248.524.3333.
