Tax Collection Information

Tax bills are mailed on or soon after November first. The first half is due November 1st. If first half is not paid by December 21st, it begins to accrue interest.

If the first half is paid by December 20th, the last half will be due by May 10th of the following year. In some counties Second half tax bills or notices are mailed around the middle of May.

Real Estate Tax Collection:

After December 20th and until May 10th the first half payment plus interest can be paid. If not paid by May 10th, the full tax plus interest must be paid. There is no longer the option of paying the first half.

If taxes are due and unpaid for 3 years, the property is subject to a tax foreclosure suit by the County. The property can then be sold at public auction. Anyone that has delinquent real estate taxes in the county cannot bid at these auctions.

Personal Property Tax Collection:

After December 20th, the full amount of Personal Property taxes are due, plus interest. Full unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in March. If the first half taxes are paid in December, the second half is due May 10th. Second half unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the Sheriff for collection in August.
