Property Taxes

Receiving Your Tax Bill

Property owners will receive a tax bill by either postal mail or email as requested by the property owners.  The first bill or “Interim Tax Bill” is issued in late January and is based on 40% of the previous year’s total taxes.  The second bill, the “Final Tax Bill” is issued in late July. These tax bills will be sent, at minimum, 21 days prior to the due date.  It is important to make sure that we always have your current mailing address on record so that you receive your tax bills and do not incur penalties for late payments.  You must also inform MPAC of any mailing address changes to ensure that our records remain current.  Please follow this link to the MPAC website page regarding Changing Your Mailing Address.
