Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I get an e-mail reminder when taxes are due?
    Yes, if you sign up for our City email blast. Emails are sent out with City information and updates at least once a month.

    Register here.
  2. When are tax bills mailed?
    Tax bills are mailed out once a year sometime in July. New bills are mailed when there is a change in ownership; but it takes 4 weeks to get the changes from the County so please contact tax office for amounts due in meantime.
  3. When are tax payments due?
    Property taxes are billed in Northfield on a calendar year, January 1st to December 31st., in four quarterly installments, as follows:

    1st quarter - February 1st
    2nd quarter – May 1st
    3rd quarter – August 1st
    4th quarter – November 1st

    There is a 10 day grace period. On the 11th day, interest is calculated back to the 1st. If the 10th falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next working day to make payment. We cannot honor postmarks. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or the interest due on delinquent taxes.

    Delinquent taxes are subject to interest as follows:
    • 8% up to $1,500.00
    • 18% on balances over $1,500.00 per annum.
    • Any delinquency in excess of $10,000 will be charged a penalty of 6% if not paid by the end of the fiscal year.
