Pre-Authorized Withdrawal Services

Prepaying Taxes

Consider prepaying your taxes for the next year, either through making regular on-line payments to your property tax account or signing up for the Pre-Authorized Withdrawal program. Credit on property tax accounts earn interest. Prepayments and interest will be be itemized as lines on your property tax notice called "Prepayments/Adjustments" and "Interest Earned". These credits will be subtracted from the taxes levied for the year. The bottom total will be what is left to pay if anything. If there is an overpayment (a negative amount) the credit will carry forward to the next years taxes and earn interest for the year.
 Please note: you can do an estimate of your taxes by using the Property Tax Estimator. Otherwise, if you are not sure feel free to contact us to help with an estimate.
