Real estate taxes are assessed on all real property owned in the City of Middletown. The Tax Assessor assesses real estate and taxes are computed and collected by the Tax Collector. Taxes are computed for the full fiscal year, which runs July 1 through June 30 of the following year, but are due in two installments (July 1st and January 1st).

Each fire district sets the fire district mill rates. The City Fire District tax is added to the Real Estate Tax bill and is included in the total due. The South Fire and Westfield Fire Districts bill and collect separately.
