Tax Collection

Tax Collection

Our work in the Collecting Division involves collecting property taxes and all other monies due to the City while serving taxpayers in a professional, courteous manner.

We mail all tax bills and collect both current and delinquent taxes. We also prepare and file tax takings and tax certification liens, issue municipal lien certificates, and prepare petitions for foreclosures with the Law Department. Additionally, we prepare property redemption certificates.

We strive to achieve the highest property collection rate possible and pursue all collection remedies allowed under statute.
