Taxpayers may choose to pay their property taxes quarterly by participating in an installment payment plan. To be eligible for the program, the taxpayers’ estimated taxes must be in excess of $100.00.

NOTE:  Applications for the installment plan are available starting November 1 for the following year’s tax through April 30 of the applying year, and must be submitted to our office by April 30 of the applying year.

Installment applications for the 2022 tax year will be available on November 1, 2021

The installment Example & Calculator provides a sample of how the installment plan arrives at your quarterly payment amounts and provides you with an option to estimate your personal payment.

The plan requires that the first installment must be made no later than June 30th to receive a discount. Payments accepted after June 30th, but before July 30th, are not discounted, and will include a 5% penalty. Failure to make the first payment will automatically cancel the participant from the plan, and the taxpayer will be required to pay the taxes due, in full by March 31st.

Upon meeting the first installment deadline, the taxpayer is then obligated to participate in the program for the entire year. Discounts do not apply to delinquent payments. Any amount remaining unpaid on April 1st is treated as a delinquent tax bill.

The following payment schedule applies to the installment plan

 1st installment: 1/4 the total of estimated taxes discounted 6%.
Payment due by June 30th.

 2nd installment: 1/4 the total estimated taxes discounted 4.5%.
Payment due by September 30th.

 3rd installment: 1/4 the total estimated taxes, plus 1/2 of any adjustment made for actual tax liability, discounted 3%.
Payment due by December 31st.

 4th installment: 1/4 of the total estimated taxes, plus the remaining 1/2 of any adjustment for actual tax liability. No discount applies.
Payment due by March 31st.

Taxpayers participating in the installment payment plan are automatically re-enrolled each year and do not have to fill out a new application. The first two installments are based upon the existing tax bill. Any changes to ownership, value, or exemption(s), will be reflected in the final two bills.
