Fiscal Year

 

The billing cycle for Real Estate tax is on a fiscal year basis. This means that instead of the regular calendar year (January through December), the bills are based from July 1 through June 30 of every year. Therefore, the first half bill of a fiscal year is due December 5, and covers July 1 through December 31. Additionally, the second half bill of the fiscal year is due June 5, and covers January 1 through June 30.
