The County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office will be mailing 38,343 delinquent reminder notices to taxpayers who failed to pay one or both installments of their 2015-2016 secured property taxes, County Treasurer Dan McAllister confirmed.
Taxpayers late on their payments will incur a 10% late fee and a $10 cost redemption fee.
Those who have not paid by June 30 will accrue an additional penalty of 1.5% per month.
The total amount due on the delinquent accounts is $91.7 million.
“The good news is delinquencies are down 4.8% this year compared to last,” said McAllister. “We want to make sure taxpayers with unpaid bills don’t end up owing even more after June.”
Taxpayers can pay online and sign up for free e-notifications about future property tax deadlines.
The County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office sent out 986,858 annual secured property tax bills to property owners last September, and 98.29% of the total secured charges have been collected.
Payments are due in two equal installments: on Nov. 1 (delinquent after December 10) and Feb. 1 (delinquent after April 10).
