City property taxes paid or postmarked after Dec. 31, 2020 will be subject to interest charges. The interest charges for late payment begins accruing January 1, 2021, at the rate of 1 and ½ percent per month, or any portion of a month, applied to the base tax until they are paid. Payments may be made with cash, check, or credit card. Bank counter checks or two-party checks are not accepted.

You no longer have to make a trip to City Hall or use the postal service to make property tax payments. Citizens can pay online.
