Tax Bills Returned for Incorrect Addresses
A number of tax bills are generally returned to the tax office for incorrect address, lack of forwarding address, etc. after a mass mailing of tax bills. Anyone not receiving a tax bill should come to the tax office or click here
to see if a bill has been generated or get a copy of the bill for their records. To insure prompt receipt of tax bills and avoid delinquent interest charges, taxpayers are encouraged to change both their registration AND license immediately at the department of motor vehicles when a change of address has occurred.
