5 Things You Should Know About Your Summer Tax Bill
The first tax bill of the year, dated July 1, has been sent. Here are five things you should know about your summer tax bill.
1. Summer taxes are due July 31. It’s important to know this date! Whether you pay the bill in person or it is handled by a financial institution, such as a mortgage company, payment is due in the treasurer’s office by 4:30 p.m. on July 31. Payments received after the due dates are subject to penalties. In some cases, people explain the bill was lost in the mail. It does not matter; failure to receive your tax bill does not waive
interest and/or penalties. It is your responsibility to know the due date so please take steps to make sure payment arrives on time.
2. Royal Oak does not accept postmarks. Payments by mail are recorded on the date received, not on the date postmarked. If there is any doubt that your payment will arrive by mail in time...
