The division collects property taxes and all other monies due to the City while serving taxpayers in a professional, courteous manner. The Division strives to achieve the highest property collection rate possible and pursues all collection remedies allowed under statute.
Collection division sends deliquent notices
Delinquent notices are sent throughout the fiscal year; however, the majority of the delinquent notices are sent during the third and fourth quarters. The first and second quarter are preliminary bills based on the prior fiscal year’s valuation. The third and fourth quarter bills are actual tax bills issued after the rate approval.
Annual Certifications Down in FY12
The annual certification is the process of posting additional unpaid taxes to outstanding liens. The annual certification is made prior to December of each fiscal year. The City certified 2,932 accounts in November 2011 (FY12), a decrease from the 3,030 certified accounts in September 2010 (FY11).
Third Quarter Collection Rate
The quarterly collection rate of property tax for the second quarter is 99.2%. While quarterly results are not the final indicator, the collection rate remains strong. While the collection rate calculated at fiscal year-end is the final indicator (and takes into account all abatements and adjustments), the quarterly statistic provides an ongoing measure of stability in collections.
