Property taxation is the main source of revenue for local governments. This revenue helps provide money to pay the costs of local government services such as general administration, planning, transportation, drainage, libraries, protective services, and parks & recreation. It is a tax levied on the value of land and improvements. Municipalities may levy property value taxes for their own needs, and can levy taxes on behalf of other public authorities.
Non-receipt of Tax Notice & Late Payment Penalties
Non-receipt of tax notice does not excuse a property owner from payment. Past due payments and Home Owner Grant applications will be subject to a 10% penalty levied on July 5th of the current year. Notices are mailed out at the end of May. If you do not receive a tax notice by mid-June, please contact the Village Office.
Please ensure your Home Owner Grant is received by the due date to avoid any penalties. A 10% penalty on current outstanding taxes and unclaimed Home Owner Grants will be levied after the due date.
