To what periods do the Summer and Winter bills relate?
Although the taxable value of the property is established as of the December 31 tax date, it is common to pro-rate the bills based on their billing date. The summer bill is billed July 1, so it is pro-rated on a July 1 through June 30 time period. The Winter bill is billed December 1, so it is pro-rated on a December 1 through November 30 time period. A business acquiring the personal property of a prior owner should make sure to escrow funds for the payment of the personal property taxes yet to be levied on the acquired property.
