Overpayment Refunds

  • Overpayment refunds of car taxes and business personal property taxes are automatically generated and normally sent within 4 to 6 weeks from the date of notification. BPOL tax refunds are generally sent within 30 days of processing. In accord with state law, the County pays interest on BPOL refunds only if mailed after 30 days of processing.

  • Real estate taxes are payable in two equal installments on July 28th and December 5th of each year. Duplicate payments sometimes occur when property is refinanced, sold, or taxpayer and lender each submit a payment for the same property, etc. Once a request is received, the normal processing time for refunds is 4 to 6 weeks.
