When will I be billed for any improvements done to my property?
You will be sent a letter from the Assessor after the improvement has been issued a Certificate of Occupancy. The letter will advise you of the additional assessed value due and what year(s) are involved. The new assessment will cause additional bill(s) to be issued. The bill, called an added assessment bill, will be sent out in October and due November 1st (4th qtr) of the current year and February 1st and May 1st of the following year. The added bill must be combined together with your original tax bill that was received in June. When the new bills are generated the following June, all taxes will be combined into one bill.
