GENERAL INFO: Payment of any amount is accepted toward taxes that have not foreclosed. When payments are made on overdue taxes any interest due is deducted first with any remainder going toward the actual tax amount. When more than one year’s taxes are due, any payment made is applied to the oldest balance first. If taxes are current, payment toward the following year’s taxes is accepted up to the amount of the last bill issued.

MORTGAGE HOLDERS: Tax bills will not be mailed directly to mortgage holders. They are mailed to the property owner only. It is the responsibility of the property owner to forward a copy if it is required.
