Property taxes officially become delinquent on June 16 each year. For payments postmarked after each deadline date, delinquent interest must be included with your payment. Your payment will be rejected and returned to you pending the payment of delinquent interest.

All real property tax not paid by September 29, of the current year will be advertised as delinquent for public auction (Tax Lien Sale). Therefore, an additional $10.00 fee will be required along with the tax payment to cover advertising expenses (amount is subject to change). Advertising will run for three consecutive weeks during the month of October.

If your current year taxes remain unpaid, a tax lien will be issued against your property at Tax Lien Sale. The property itself is not sold at Tax Lien Sale. However, if your taxes remain unpaid for three consecutive years, a Treasurer's Deed may be issued. Find more liens information
