Pay Your Property Taxes

Property taxes are paid yearly for each property or manufactured home you own or lease. You pay your property taxes to the office that sent your tax notice.

 All owners are responsible for any unpaid property taxes. If your property has multiple owners, each owner will be sent a copy of the property tax notice. To make sure the taxes are paid in full by the due date we recommend:

  • all of the owners communicate and agree on how to share the taxes, and
  • you have one owner make the payment.

You must pay or defer your property taxes in full by the due date indicated on your tax notice to avoid late payment penalties. If you are unable to pay your taxes in full before the due date, still claim the home owner grant (if you qualify) to reduce the amount of tax you owe.

Home Owner Grant

The home owner grant reduces the amount of annual property tax you pay for your principal residence.

Defer Your Taxes

If you aren’t able to pay your property taxes by the due date, you may be able to defer paying your taxes.

Rural Farm Extension Program

If you’re a farmer who is unable to pay your property taxes by the due date, you can apply to extend your property tax due date to October 31.

To receive an extension, your application must be received before the property tax due date.
