Please consider using an email address such as Yahoo or Gmail so that it is more likely to be a long-term address and not one that will change with a new Internet provider as it will be a year before we next send you a tax bill.

If you have multiple bills you should check the verification code, all bills with the same code will be sent to your email address. For each unique code follow the steps above and select that appropriate account number associated with one of those codes and each of those bills will also be sent to you electronically.
The Treasurer is charged with collecting all county property taxes, making distribution of those taxes to the various underlying authorities and investing the difference on behalf of the County.
Property Tax Collections
Property taxes are collected one year in arrears. In 2009 the Treasurer's office collected the 2008 taxes for a total value of $325 million on 170,000 tax bills. By June 30 each year we have generally collected about 95% of all tax dollars and 90% of all tax bills are paid. The remaining six months of the year are spent collecting the 5% of tax dollars that have not been paid. 99.9% of all taxes are collected before the end of year.
In 2009 we distributed property taxes to about 300 underlying authorities. The school districts are by far the largest single portion of the property tax dollars at nearly 50% followed by the County at about 20%, all other authorities share the remaining amount. The Treasurer prepares monthly statements reflecting amounts collected and disbursed to all underlying authorities.
The county holds a portfolio of investments including Federal Government Agency bonds with a duration of five years or less, some local bank certificates of deposit and money market funds all in accordance with the state statutes on public fund investments..
In addition to the collection of taxes, the office also performs tax deferment applications, mobile home authentications, prepares Certificates of Taxes Due and responds to other inquiries related to taxation.
Reports of the fiscal activities of the Treasurer's office are submitted to the county commissioners and published semi-annually.
