Prepayment coupons are provided to anyone wishing to make advance payments towards Real Property Taxes for the current year. Coupons may be requested by marking and returning the stub attached at the bottom portion of the Tax Notice to the Treasurer's Office or by simply contacting the Treasurer's Office to request them.
Prepayments are not a requirement. There are no penalties for missed or late scheduled prepayments. Prepayments may be made in the amount indicated on the coupon or any other amount.
Coupons are mailed near the 15th of January to those who have requested them by that date. After that time, coupons are printed on a per-requested basis. The monthly estimated payment amount is calculated based on the prior year's tax amount. Coupons are provided for the monthly payments beginning January through September. The Tax Notice mailed in October will indicate total prepayments made and the balance owing.
Properly Applying Coupons
Coupons are not required to make prepayments throughout the year; however, to assure payments are properly applied, a property parcel number should be included with any prepayment nor accompanied by a coupon.
Exceeding Actual Taxes
In the event total prepayments as estimated for the year exceed the actual taxes, the balance will be applied to the subsequent year taxes or refunded if requested. Any under payment will be shown on the Tax Notice mailed in October and will be due on or before November 30.
