2004 Commercial Property Taxes Due May 31

May 5, 2006 – Commercial property tax bills for 2004 are due May 31, Gov. Charles Turnbull said in news release issued Thursday.
Turnbull said if taxes are not paid by June 15, they'll be considered delinquent.
Tax bills are payable to the Finance Department, not the Tax Assessor's office.
The last date to file an appeal is June 30.
Tax Assessor Roy Martin could not be reached for further information, but he said in April that the bills went out the first week in April. He said they did not have due dates on them when issued.
Martin said they were issued using 1998 assessments.
He said values determined under a recent reassessment will be reflected in the 2005 bills.
In 2000, U.S. District Court Judge Thomas K. Moore ruled that the local government was incorrectly assessing commercial properties. He ordered the government to begin assessing real estate based on market value rather than replacement cost and to tax all properties at the same rate regardless of whether they were used for residential or commercial purposes.
This necessitated the revaluation currently in process.
