Property taxes are the major source of revenue. The base for property taxation is the assessment roll. It defines classes and types of properties which are subject to taxation. The assessment roll comes from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation [MPAC]. The information included in this roll is then used to determine tax rates and to levy taxes. Tax rates are determined and taxes levied after Council adopts the annual budget of estimated revenues and expenditures.

The Installment preauthorized payment plan is also available; please submit the same form with your banking information. Payments are made in four installments which are the tax due dates on your tax bill. Please contact the office if you have any questions on how to fill out these forms.
