Property Taxes

Local property taxes are based on the value of real property and certain types of personal property. It is the responsibility of the Tax Office to ensure that property values are assessed uniformly and equitably among all property owners throughout the County.

Annual Required Listing Period

January is the annual listing period. The property owner is responsible for completing and submitting a listing form to the Tax Office by January 31, 2020.
