Returns for real estate are filed in the Tax Assessor's office and returns for personal property are filed with the Board of Assessors. The Board of Assessors will review your proposed value and if they disagree, an assessment notice with the Boards' value will be mailed to you.
After the due date, for real estate and business personal property, interest at the rate of 1 percent per month is charged. Additionally, a penalty of 10 percent will apply to all taxes that are not paid within 90 days of the deadline. However, homestead property with a tax liability of less than $500 does not receive the 90-day penalty.
If the property taxes remain unpaid, the tax commissioner has the right and responsibility to levy on the property for non-payment. Of course we consider this a last resort for tax collection and prefer to use other collection methods.
