Payments from the 2016-2017 bills are expected to generate total charges of $5,662,765,208 for the County, up from $5,371,420,700 last year.
“With high demand and a limited supply, the price of housing is on the rise in the County, which means property taxes are also up,” said McAllister. “That’s a good sign for the economy; the housing market is coming back stronger than ever.”
Both the total charges and number of tax bills are at an all-time high (see graphs below).
The first installment of the secured property taxes is due on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. The delinquent date is December 10, 2016, but since it falls on a Saturday, taxpayers have a couple of extra days to get their payments in by the close of business on Monday, December 12, 2016. Payments can be made online, by phone at 855.829.3773, or in person by visiting any of the five branch offices.
Property owners who have not received their property tax bill by November 1, 2016, should call the TTC at 877.829.4732.
