Section 3: Personal Property Tax

The tangible Personal Property tax has been phased out for general business filers. No annual or new taxpayer returns, either 920 or 945, are required to be filed for tax years 2009 and thereafter.

The tax will temporarily continue to apply to telephone companies and inter-exchange telecommunication companies. For these companies, the tax is being phased out, with the assessment percentage falling to zero for the 2011 tax year.


Section 4: Delinquent Tax Payments

The collection of Delinquent (unpaid) Taxes, be it Real Estate, Manufactured Home or Personal Property, is a year-round process. Anyone falling behind in the payment of property tax is requested to contact the Treasurer’s Office so that the circumstances regarding the unpaid tax and the taxpayer’s options for payment arrangements can be discussed.

The treasurer is authorized to offer a number of installment plans to pay delinquent taxes. It is the goal and responsibility of the Treasurer’s Office to assist those having difficulties with back taxes. Taxpayers utilizing or setting up a payment plan must do so in person at the Treasurer’s Office and adhere to such arrangements in terms of payments to avoid any Legal/Foreclosure action instituted by the Monroe County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
