All real estate is assigned an assessed value by the Office of the Assessor of Real Estate. Real estate is appraised each year and is assessed at 100% of market value.

Tax Rates & Collection


The City Council adopts a tax rate for real estate tax each year when the budget is approved. Real estate taxes are collected in two installments, but may be paid in full when the first installment is due, if the taxpayer so desires. Bills for the first half are mailed approximately November 1, and are due December 5. Second half bills are mailed approximately May 1 and are due on June 5. A penalty of 10% is assessed if the bill is not paid by the due date. Interest at the rate of 10% per year accrues beginning July 1 on unpaid balances.
