What is an occupancy fee?

If you purchase and move into a newly constructed home, that no one has ever lived in and move into it after January 1, you will pay the occupancy fee instead of property taxes for the portion of the year you live there. 

You must notify the Assessor's Office on or before the date you move into your new home.
