Here are some helpful tips that might just save you some time:
Did you get your real estate tax statement but not your personal property statement? In order to be good stewards of your tax dollars, we stuff as many matching names and addresses as possible into one envelope to save on postage and envelopes and all that jazz. However, sometimes they stick together like two new 20 dollars bills. Please check to see if you have statements in the same envelope that are stuck together like that.
Can you write one check for multiple statements and mail them all in the same envelope? You bet you can. We like to make things easy peasy for you.
Who do you write the check to? Leah Betts, Collector of Revenue

The Assessor's office assesses property (both real estate and personal property). We use their assessed values and the taxing district levies to calculate the tax bills. We collect over a quarter of a billion dollars each year and distribute the collections to nearly 40 local taxing districts such as schools, cities, the library, etc.
You must fill out an assessment list for personal property in January of each year; real estate is automatically assessed. We send bills out in November. If you don't receive your bill by Thanksgiving, you need to give us a call. You must pay your bill by December 31st in order to avoid late fees.
I urge you to read the information on the Must Read link to learn specific details about this process. We want to exceed your expectations and are here to cheerfully help you. Please do not hesitate to contact our office.
