SALE OF PROPERTY - TAX BILL
If you are the owner of record on April 1, you will receive the current year's tax bill.  Please forward the tax bill to the new owner if you sell your property after April 1 of the current year.  New owners will not receive a new tax bill or have their name changed until the following April 1 date.
Proration of taxes between the buyer and seller does not involve the municipality.  Often times monies are collected for taxes at the closing but are not paid to the municipality.
