Bill Types

Secured Property Tax

Property owners pay secured property tax annually. The secured property tax amount is based on the assessed value of the property as established each year on January 1st by the Office of the Assessor/Recorder. The annual tax bill is sent to the mailing address on file by the end of October, and covers the fiscal year beginning on July 1st and ending on June 30th of the following calendar year. Learn more about Secured Property Tax.

Supplemental Property Tax

After a change in ownership or when new construction is completed, the Office of the Assessor/Recorder must determine a new base year value for the property. The new value is determined usually by the current market value of the property. Once the new value is determined, the Office of the Assessor/Recorder will send you notification of the new assessed amount.Learn more about Supplemental Property Tax.

Escape Tax

After a change in ownership or when new construction is completed, the Office of the Assessor/Recorder must determine a new base year value for the property. The new value is determined usually by the current market value of the property. However, if the determination of the new value is delayed, an escape assessment is generated. Once the new value is determined, the Office of the Assessor/Recorder will send you notification of the new assessed amount.

Redemption Tax

A redemption tax bill is produced when taxes and penalties are not paid on a property. The property becomes tax-defaulted and is subject to tax auction if taxes and penalties are not paid after five years. The property may be redeemed from tax-default by fully paying all outstanding obligations.
