As your county tax collector, I know that everyone is being impacted by the COVID-19. I and my staff care about the people, businesses, and communities we serve, and we are working hard to balance the interest of individual taxpayers, community needs for essential services during this emergency, as well as state and national financial impacts.
Although the Tax Collector does not have the authority to move the property tax delinquency date, we fully expect to work with many taxpayers over the coming weeks and months to waive penalties based on hardships related to COVID-19. I know that an extraordinary number of individuals and businesses have been affected and my office will do everything we can to assist these individuals and businesses.
We have created these web pages to provide information and resources for our taxpayers. Property Tax Information Related to COVID-19
