What is a Supplemental tax bill?

State law requires the immediate reassessment of property (for tax purposes) whenever a change of ownership or completion of construction occurs. If applicable, you will receive a supplemental tax bill reflecting the change in value for the balance of the tax year. Due dates for a supplemental tax bill depends on when the bill is mailed. 

A decrease in value will result in a negative supplemental tax bill being issued. These negative bills or refunds do not cause a change to your current annual tax bill which must be paid timely to avoid penalty. 

Supplemental tax bills do not replace the regular tax bill. Supplemental tax bills are not mailed to your mortgage company. They are not paid by funds in your impound account. If you receive a supplemental tax bill and have any questions about payment responsibility, please contact your mortgage company.
