Tax statements sent in December 2017 for the tax installment due January 1, 2018 show charges, including interest, if applicable, due through January 31, 2018 only. Those mailed statements reflect payments and adjustments made through Nov. 22, 2017 only (the day they were produced). Taxpayers making payment now should contact the tax collector’s office, or check the city website, before making their payment, to determine exactly what they owe.
NEW: "Prepayment" of property tax obligations:
As a consequence of recent changes in the way state and local property taxes may be allowable as deductions in the federal tax code, many taxpayers had new questions about "prepayment" of tax obligations that come due in 2018. Taxpayers were welcome to pay their January 1, 2018 installments of their tax obligations in calendar year 2017. However, the city did not have the authority to collect tax installments that will come due in July 2018 or later. Many taxpayers chose to pay their January 2018 obligations in the last remaining days of December 2017, even though the last day on which to pay without penalty is February 1, 2018. However, we did not accept payments towards future tax obligations, as doing so would have conflicted with state law.
Past due statements will be sent to taxpayers in February, 2018.
