The Fiscal Court passed ordinance #03-2012-656 authorizing fire dues to be collected by the sheriff as part of the county tax bill. The Sheriff’s office has no control over this tax but it must be collected. As per the same ordinance you are entitled to a refund of the fire tax but this must be collected from the responsible fire department for the area of your property. This department will be listed on your tax bill. Please download the forms here. The magistrate and fire departments contact information as well as the refund form and the future opt out forms are included. Please complete these forms.
