What We Do
The Tax Division of the Department of Finance is responsible for the issuing of tax bills and the collection of all taxes (real estate, personal property and motor vehicles), and tax liens levied by the City.
Real Estate Taxes and Personal Property Taxes over $100 are due in two installments, on July 1st and January 1st. All bills are mailed in June with enough copies for both installments.
Regular Motor Vehicle Taxes due in one installment on July 1st.
Supplemental Motor Vehicle Taxes are due in one installment on January 1st.
Interest penalties on delinquent taxes accrue at a rate of 18% per annum by State Statute.
Payments received after the thirty (30) day grace period are considered two (2) months delinquent, i.e. 3% interest penalty, thereafter, 1.5% additional per month.
Checks returned for insufficient funds will be assessed an additional twenty dollar ($20.00) fee and tax, interest and penalty will be required to be paid by certified check or cash.
Mill Rate for Fiscal Year 2022 is 37.95
City Center District Mill Rate Fiscal Year 2022 is 1.20
A Mill is 1/1000 of a dollar.
Taxes are computed by multiplying assessment value by the Mill Rate.
Example: Assessed Value of Property $200,000 Mill Rate 37.95
Therefore: $200,000 x .03795 = $7,590.00 annual tax
