Installment Plans

Personal Property

You may pay your personal property taxes on a monthly basis.

Any outstanding bills for personal property MUST be paid and the current year Declaration turned in to the assessor's office to enroll.

Personal property installment plans will begin in March of each year.

Use the assessment amount of your current Declaration multiplied by last year's tax rate, divided by the number of months left in the current year.

  • For example, this year’s assessment was $4,333.00 and last year's tax rate was 7.2764, the expected amount for this year should be $315.29 and
    • if your plan starts in March, the amount per month would be $32 ($316 - rounded up - divided by 10 months)
    • if your plan starts in July, the amount per month would be $53 ($316 divided by 6 remaining months)

The December payment will be adjusted to reflect the balance of the tax due based on the current year’s bill. The balance must be paid by December 31st, to avoid late fees and penalties, or possible termination of the plan.

We will accept the following payment options:

  • Check, money order, or cash – using COUPON method. With coupons, you may double-up or skip months, provided the balance is paid in full by December 31st.
  • You may authorize the collector’s office to debit your bank account on either the 5th or 20th of each month. Please read and complete the Automated Payment Service (APS) form (Installment Plan sign-up form), and attach a voided check to enroll.
  • Credit card charged on the 20th of the month with 2.3% added to cover the credit card processing company’s fees.
    • Need to have current credit card information on file
    • Currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards.

You may pay your real estate taxes and/or assessment on a monthly basis.

Current bills for property MUST be paid to enroll.

  • For example, if last year's base tax was $1201.58 and
    • if your plan starts in January, the amount per month would be $100 ($1202 divided by 12 months)
    • if your plan starts in March, the amount per month would be $120 ($1202 divided by 10 remaining months)

The December payment will be adjusted to reflect the balance of the tax due based on the current year’s bill. The balance must be paid by December 31st, to avoid late fees and penalties, or possible termination of the plan.
