Installment Payment Plan

Taxpayers may choose to pay their real estate taxes quarterly by participating in an installment payment plan. To be eligible for the program, the taxpayer's estimated taxes must be in excess of $100.00. Those who qualify must fill out and return an Installment Plan application form to the Tax Collector's Office prior to May 1st (application forms are available at all county Tax Collector offices).

The plan requires that the first installment must be made no later than June 30th. Failure to make this 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.

  • 1st Installment - 1/4 the total estimated taxes discounted 6%
    Due by June 30
  • 2nd Installment - 1/4 the total estimated taxes discounted 4.5%
    Due by September 30
  • 3rd Installment - 1/4 the total estimated taxes plus 1/2 of any adjustment made for actual tax liability discounted 3%
    Due by December 31st
  • 4th Installment - 1/4 the total estimated taxes plus the remaining 1/2 of any adjustment for actual tax liability. No discount applies.
    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. If you wish to be removed from the installment plan once enrolled, simply disregard the June tax bill. This will automatically remove you from the plan. You will then receive a bill in November for the gross amount.
