Delinquent Taxes

On March 1st all unpaid taxes are turned over to the County Treasurer as delinquent. At that time a 4% administrative fee is added and interest accrues at 1% per month until paid. 

If  taxes remain unpaid for 3 years the County Treasurer will then foreclose on the property and sell it at public auction. Paying someone's taxes does NOT give you a legal right to the property.


Pet Licenses

Pet licenses are available November 1 through February 29. Beginning March 1, penalty applies. Due to an animal ordinance change, cat licenses are no longer required.
