Tax notices are mailed no later than May 1 of each year and are due by June 30 of each year. A monthly tax payment plan is available.
Preauthorized Tax Payment Plan
A monthly tax payment plan is the smart way to pay your property tax.
Now you can pay your taxes in twelve monthly installments instead of a single large payment.
- Makes your month to month budgeting for expenses easier.
- Avoids the embarrassment of missing payments or a penalty charge for late payments.
How it Works
The PAT Plan runs from January to December each year. Your first five monthly payments will be estimated based on your previous year’s tax levy.
Residents receive their tax notice in May. As PAT Plan participant, your monthly payments will then be revised for you June payment.
Any adjustments required as a result of the annual levy will be spread over the last seven payments of the year. The revised payments continue thru November. December’s payment will be adjusted to clear the tax balance and this payment will continue thru May of the following year. (See example)
Payments may only be made by automatic withdrawal from an account with CHEQUING privileges at a bank, trust company, treasury branch, or credit union. The S.V. of Val Quentin requires your written permission before the withdrawals begin. There is no charge for this service; however, your normal bank charges may apply.
