null City will defer final property tax billing to help alleviate financial pressures caused by COVID-19
May 13, 2020 -
Recognizing the financial hardship that some property owners are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is deferring the 2020 final property tax billing, which would normally be due on the last business day of June.
“The City recognizes this is a difficult time for many of our taxpayers, and we are reviewing alternate timelines for the final billing. We are also looking at opportunities for tax relief strategies to help alleviate some of the financial pressures that property owners may be experiencing because of the pandemic,” says Jeff Walker, Manager, Taxation & Revenue.
