What are Personal Property Billing Steps?

Step 1 – Semi-Annual Billing

Personal Property tax is billed quarterly in two mailings. If the bill is less than $50.00, it will ONLY be billed on the First Half. The First Half is mailed by October 1st. The Second Half is mailed by April 1st. Their due dates are the following:

  • First Half due November 1st
  • Second Half due May 1st

*Note: If payment due date falls on a weekend, the due date will move to the first Monday after the due date.

 

Step 2 – Demand Bill

Demand bills are issued after the 2nd Half due date of May 1st on all outstanding accounts. The taxpayer has fourteen (14) days to pay the Demand Bill.   

The demand charge is currently $10.00, the interest rate is 14% on the unpaid amount calculated from the due date of each half.
