Taxpayers may choose to pay their property taxes quarterly by participating in an installment payment plan. Applications must be submitted by April 30th, to be eligible for the plan, the taxpayers' prior year taxes must exceed $100.00 and NOT be escrowed by Mortgage Company. To apply for the Installment Plan, simply search the tax roll for your account and click on the "Apply for 2017 Installment Plan" button. Complete the form and hit the submit button. If you participated in the installment plan the previous tax year and completed it successfully, you are automatically re-enrolled in the program and do not need to reapply.
The plan requires that the first installment be made no later than June 30th. Failure to make the first payment will automatically terminate the participant's eligibility for the remainder of the year. The taxpayer will then be sent a regular tax bill in November, and must apply to be reinstated on the installment plan for future tax years.
The 1st and 2nd installments are based on ¼ of the previous year's taxes. The 1st installment is discounted 6% and due by June 30th. The 2nd installment, due September 30th, is discounted 4.5%. The 3rd and 4th installments are ½ of the remaining actual tax liability for the current year. The 3rd installment is discounted 3% and is due by December 31st. The 4th installment is not discounted and due by March 31st.
