I did not receive a tax bill, why do I have to pay a late fee?

As an owner of real estate it is your responsibility to make sure the taxes are paid each year by December 31st.  If you do not receive your tax bill by the end of November, please call the office so that we may mail you a duplicate statement.  Tax bills are mailed as a courtesy and failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you of the obligation to pay by December 31st each year.  State statute requires us to collect interest and penalty on any payment received with a postmark after December 31st.  Please be aware of the last pickup time at your post office if you are mailing on the last day of the year.
