2019 Property Tax Bills

The 2019 property tax bills will be emailed or mailed by October 31st. If the tax roll is available prior to that date, you will be able to view, print or pay your tax bill online. Please check here for the announcement that the tax roll is open and payments are being accepted.

Does your driver's license or ID card have a gold star?
Starting October 1, 2020, your license or ID card must be Real ID compliant, or have a gold star in the upper right corner, or you will not be able to use the card to travel by air in the United States. You can obtain a Real ID compliant card at any Service Center, but before coming into an office, review the documentation requirements.
