In response to inquiries from many citizens about pre-payment of 2018 property taxes we sought guidance from our city attorneys and accountants. As a result, we were informed that while we can accept payment of the tax bill already issued and currently due no later than February 14, 2018, we cannot accept estimated payments for the summer tax bills as they have not been calculated or billed. On December 27, the IRS issued a memorandum that confirms the advice we received. While we always seek to benefit our citizens whenever possible, the IRS has confirmed we cannot do so in this instance.
Thank you and Happy New Year.
