The 2018 Personal Property Tax ("Car Tax") and Business Personal Property Tax bills are due Friday, October 5, 2018. A new City ordinance passed in August 2016 requires an additional late payment penalty on personal property bills that remain unpaid after 60 days. The additional penalty amount is 15 percent of the unpaid tax and will be applied on December 5, 2018. A statutory 10 percent penalty is already required on all bills remaining unpaid after the due date. The 15 percent penalty applied on December 5 will be in addition to the 10 percent. Please note that the so called “super penalty” only applies to personal property taxes. Avoid late payment penalties by paying on time!
