What is Actual Tax?

Real estate / Personal Property tax is the actual tax for the Fiscal Year. In December, the Board of Assessors assesses the tax for the year and the amounts paid on the Preliminary bills are subtracted from the tax. The Real Estate/Personal Property tax is due in two installments, February (3rd quarter) and May (4th quarter).
