Change of Address

Upon moving, you must notify the taxing authority (Commissioner of the Revenue) of your new billing address as soon as possible so that your record can be updated.  All billings will be mailed to the last known address on record.


Note: If a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is extended to the next succeeding business day. 

Please be aware that failure to receive a bill does not relieve your obligation to pay the tax due by the due date. Failure to pay the tax due by the due date will result in a late payment penalty of 10% or a $10.00 (minimum) being assessed.  An annual interest of 10% begins January 1 (First half) and July 1 (Second half).
