The Collector's office collects property taxes to help support schools, cities, roads, jails, and county expenses based on millage rates set by local governments and voters. These taxes are about 1% of the value of your home, car, and other items that you may own.

Property must be assessed between January 1st and May 31st each year. A 10% late assessment fee will be added to anyone assessing personal property after the May 31st deadline. (New purchases will have 30 days after purchase to assess without penalty)

Property tax bills are usually mailed by the end of March and must be paid by Oct. 15 to avoid a penalty. Taxes are due by October 15th the following year. A 10% penalty will be added to Personal Property and Real Estate paid after October 15th plus 10% annual interest on Real Estate.
