    Refunds & Unclaimed Funds


    If the property tax records indicate an overpayment of real estate taxes, one or more parties may be eligible for a refund. Overpayments can occur for several reasons. Often they are the result of recent ownership changes where both the previous and current owners make payment toward the same tax charges. Sometimes they are the results of adjustments to the tax charges made after the billing has occurred and payments submitted.

    Instructions for Submission:

    1. Contact the Treasurer's Office by fax or mail regarding your request to
      resolve a refund issue.
    2. Please provide a daytime telephone number.
