Real Estate and Per Capita tax bills will be mailed out on July 1, 2021 and District residents/inhabitants should begin receiving them shortly thereafter. Each tax bill will be mailed out separately and not combined in one envelope.
Recently, the District conducted a reconciliation of our Per Capita tax rolls to capture missing residents/inhabitants. We ask your patience with this year’s tax bill reconciliation process as we realize there may be bills sent out in error (i.e. duplicates, no longer a resident of the District, etc.). If you feel you received a tax bill in error or should have received a tax bill and did not, please contact your respective tax collector to resolve this matter. Tax Collector contact and additional information relating to taxes can be found below.
