What if I buy/sell my property during the year?
The owner of the property as of January 1 of the current tax year is responsible for the taxes for the entire year. The Tax Office does not prorate taxes; this should be taken care of between the buyer and the seller at the time of the sale. All unpaid taxes will be advertised in a local newspaper as being delinquent after January 5, and an additional cost will be added. Past due taxes are subject to enforcement measures including, but not limited to, garnishment of wages and bank accounts, levy on personal property, and foreclosure of real estate.
