Please be advised, of a recent approval of a Resolution that waives the penalties and extends the face period for real estate taxes for 2020 only, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Real Estate Tax Payments made through Dec. 31, 2020, will be collected at the face rate, which is the payment amount that would normally be due in April or May. The resolution extends the face period through the end of the year for payments received or postmarked by December 31, 2020 and waives the 5% and 10% penalties. Payments that are submitted or postmarked after December 31, 2020, will incur the 10% penalty.
