Property Taxes

Each year Town Council goes through the process of finalizing the budget for the next year. Once completed the Financial Report is presented to the public at a Public Hearing. This is when the mill rates for the next year are announced. The mill rates combined with the assessment value of your property are used in determining the amount of tax you will owe. The current years mill rate is listed below.
