Division of Property Tax Issues 2009 Bills

The Division of Property Tax is issuing 2009 real property tax bills, the Office of the Lieutenant Governor announced Friday.

As in previous years, property owners will receive discounts for bills paid before the March 30 due date. A 5 percent discount will be applied to bills paid by March 15. Those paying their 2009 tax bill after that date and before the due date will receive a discount of 2.5 percent. Property owners who pay after May 30 risk late payment fees.

Formal appeals regarding tax assessments must be filed with the Board of Tax Review no later than June 15, 2012.

Property owners should carefully review their 2009 bill, which lists past due property taxes on the back and also reflects any credits owed to the property owner, according to the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. Any overpayments from the 2008 tax bill will be reflected as a prepayment of the 2009 bill. Additional credits in excess of the balance due will be applied to the 2010 property tax bill.
