Monday, November 30th is the deadline for the 4% discount for property tax payments. Tax Collector offices are only open for customers with an appointment, so taxpayers should plan ahead to take advantage of the 4% discount. Due to COVID-19, the November 30th property tax drive-thru service will have some changes. That service, from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, is available for payment by check only and receipts can be printed online from your home computer. Tax Collector Barbara Ford-Coates noted, “Customers should arrive with their tax bill and check already written to be placed in the drive-thru drop box.”
