Overpayments & Refunds
Any tax payments that generate a refund will not be processed until the county processes all payments in February. The county has requested that the Village wait until the Village's tax collection period is over to validate all potential refunds. If settlement with the county goes as planned, the Village will try and have refunds processed by March.
