Research Tax Bills - Past & Present Years

To review the history of tax bill payments on county properties for the current year and previous years, please visit Tax Bill Search Website.


For your convenience tax bills can be paid online or you can mail in payment using the envelope provided with the bills or mail payment to our office.  Our office is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, where you are always welcome to walk in, use our outside payment window, or the drop box to make your payment in-person.  

Tag & Tax Combined on Vehicles

Beginning in 2013, the Tag and Tax Together program was implemented to allow property owners to conveniently pay annual vehicle registration fees and property taxes together. Motor vehicles that are registered and tagged are listed with the county automatically after you renew your registration or register a new vehicle.  

Visit the DMV website for additional information.
