PLEASE NOTE:

Failure to receive a tax bill does not invalidate the tax or interest due. As owners of property, taxpayers are responsible to know when their taxes are due. Failure to have received a bill does not exempt the taxpayer from payment of all taxes and all interest charges. Interest is charged to all late payments. There are no exceptions to this.

A $20.00 FEE IS CHARGED FOR ANY CHECK RETURNED BY THE BANK FOR INSUFFICIENT FUNDS.
