April 30th Deadline to Apply to Pay 2024 Taxes by Installment

The quarterly installment plan enables a taxpayer to pay real estate taxes in four payments rather than one. In order to qualify to pay the 2024 taxes by installment, your 2023 taxes must be more than $100. The application is due April 30th. Once a property is on the installment plan, it is automatically re-enrolled each year. To take a property off the plan, do not make the first payment in June. The property will be dropped from the installment plan and the annual tax bill will be mailed in November.
