Property tax bills, also known as Statements of Account, show how much property tax you have to pay, how your taxes were calculated, and the exemptions, abatements, and credits that were applied.
Bill Mailing and Due Dates
Bills are mailed four weeks before they are due. You will be mailed a property tax bill only if you pay the taxes yourself and have a balance due. If a bank or mortgage company pays your taxes for you, they will receive the bill unless you are responsible for paying other charges, like sidewalk repair and water and sewer fees. Bills are mailed semi-annually (twice a year) or quarterly (four times a year), depending on the assessed value of the property. You can also view your property tax bill online about a month before your taxes are due.
If the payment due date falls on a weekend or a federal holiday, the payment is due the next business day.
