    • Remember: Real Estate and Personal Property bills have two coupons attached to the bottom, first installment due July 1st & the second half due January 1st as always you have thirty days from the due date to pay without penalty.
    • If a receipt is desired send a stamped, self addressed envelope with all copies of the bill.
