To this end, the Department’s staff pledges its efforts toward the accomplishment of four critical objectives:

  • Timely tax billing.
  • The attainment of tax equity whereby each taxpayer pays only their fair share of the tax burden.
  • The maximization of tax base growth revenue.
  • The acceptance by the public of the administration of the property and excise tax systems through prompt, courteous, honest and thorough services.
