Property Taxes

The current property tax rate is 0.25% of the recorded property value per year. The tax is generally paid on a quarterly basis. Property values are determined by the Municipal Government by (1) the value stipulated in a property sales deed, (2) A mortgage recorded against the property or (3) By direct appraisal from Municipal officials.
