Winter vs. Summer Taxes

Summer Winter Tax Bill

Winter property taxes vs. summer property taxes; are there really two separate tax seasons? No, not really. Both tax bills cover the entire year (January 1 – December 31) and the taxes owed are divided into two separate payments: a summer payment and a winter payment. State education taxes are collected in the summer, while other government taxing units default to the winter collection. Local school boards choose to collect either on the summer or winter bill--or split their millages 50/50 on both bills. That is why even if a property is sold mid-year, both parties to the sale will pay the summer and winter bills based on the number of days each party owned the parcel.

Winter property taxes are due and payable on December 1, 2023 through February 14, 2024.
