  • Penalty must be added to the unpaid amount if not received on or before the due date. 
    • Penalty rates range from 2% to 14%. The later the payment the greater the penalty.
    • To avoid penalty:
      • Envelope must be postmarked on or before the due date. Only official US postmark is used to determine payment mail date.
      • If using a bank's bill pay system, please verify mailing requirements to allow for timely postmark. Also, make sure to accurately key all information to avoid delayed payments which could result in penalty.

Failure to receive a property tax statement does not exempt the taxpayer from timely payment of the taxes due. First half tax payments must be paid in full with penalty (if applicable) prior to applying money towards second half payment. If you are unsure of how penalty is calculated or what is due, please contact us at 952-361-1910.
