Delinquent Taxes
  • If you currently owe or will owe delinquent taxes, please pay as much as possible before the deadline.
    As required by law (Sec. 33.01), penalty and interest accrues on the unpaid balance. If you know that you will not be able to pay all of your property taxes, it is advisable to pay all that you can and contact the office to schedule payments. Making a payment, even a small one, will save you money.
    By law, penalties and interest increase monthly, up to 24% annually, and may exceed your base tax due. To know exactly what amount is charged for each month of delinquency, view this chart of annual penalty and interest charges. If the debt is not paid, further legal action may also be taken. When a lawsuit is filed, additional costs include a minimum of $335, plus attorney's fees of 15% of the total amount due.

    Resident Homesteads - Effective September 1, 2013, owners of a residence homestead may enter into an installment agreement for the payment of tax, penalties and interest if the person has not entered into an installment agreement in the preceding 24 months. As required by law (Sec. 33.02), the installment agreement must provide for equal monthly payments for a period of at least 12 months. Penalty will be frozen upon the timely receipt of the first delinquent installment and interest will continue to accrue at 1% per month. Should any terms of the agreement be broken, the penalty will be recalculated as if the owner had never entered into an installment agreement.

    All unpaid accounts, whether set up with an installment agreement or not, are sent a delinquent tax statement by mid-February each year by law. The delinquent tax bill will show the unpaid balance with penalty and interest (7%).

  • There are several ways to contact the tax office to schedule payments.
