Application For Deferment of Summer Taxes

Taxes are payable by mail, in person at the Treasurer’s Office during the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM or can be put in the drop-box located in the island in front of City Hall. Failure to receive your tax bill will not defer payment of the 4% late penalty. Post mark dates are accepted.
BOTH SUMMER AND WINTER REAL PROPERTY TAXES ARE PAYABLE THROUGH FEBRUARY. AS OF MARCH 1st, ALL UNPAID TAXES WILL BE CONSIDERED DELINQUENT AND SENT TO THE WAYNE COUNTY TREASURER, AT WHICH TIME THEY WILL NO LONGER BE PAYABLE THROUGH THE CITY OF GIBRALTAR.
If your mortgage company pays the taxes for you, they will receive a copy of your tax bill. You will not receive a copy of your tax bill if you pay them through an escrow account.
