Payments can be made to the Treasurer's office by mail, in person and online.
Tax bills for the Second Installment of the 2009 Tax Year Property Taxes were mailed November 10, 2010 to property owners, with a due date of December 13, 2010.
The First Installment for the 2009 payments were due March 2, 2010 and are based on a percentage of the prior year's total tax. The Second Installment bill relies on the delivery of various sets of data by other state and county agencies. Unlike the First Installment bill, the Second Installment bill reflects the new assessed values, assessment appeals, exemptions, the state equalization factor, and taxing-district tax rates. All of these data are prepared by other state and county agencies.
The Second Installment payment can be made by mail, online or in person at the Treasurer's offices or at any of nearly 400 Chase Bank locations.
