Summer Tax Bills 

Summer tax bills for City of Monroe residents are due Monday, July 1st.

The City of Monroe Clerk-Treasurer’s Office is offering extended evening hours Wednesday, June 26th, through Monday, July 1st, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, in order to accommodate residents paying property taxes at City Hall, 120 East First Street, in Downtown Monroe.

City of Monroe property tax bills were mailed in May and are due Monday, July 1st. After that date, a 5% penalty is added to any delinquent taxes and is applied to the winter bill.

Clerk-Treasurer Michelle LaVoy: "The City Treasurer's office will be open later during this limited time to make it easier for those who need to come to the office and can't make it during our normal business hours."

Residents have several methods by which to submit payments. Clerk-Treasurer LaVoy: "There are many options available for payments in addition to mail, including online via the City's web site and the City Hall drop box, but sometimes you just need to come to our counter and speak with someone. I hope the extended hours make it easier to do that in time for the payment deadline."

Clerk-Treasurer LaVoy plans to offer extended hours from time to time throughout the year for customers. "My office is here to serve the residents and others doing business in our city. Looking at new ways to deliver that service is a top priority for me and my department."

City of Monroe property tax bills were mailed in December and are due annually on February 14th. After that date, a penalty is added to any delinquent taxes and payments will be taken through the end of February in the City Treasurer's office.  They are then turned over to the Monroe County Treasurer in March. The City of Monroe cannot accept property tax payments after the delinquent property tax has been turned over to the County.

Property taxes can also be paid online.  Visit the Treasurer's tax page for more info.
