DEADLINE TO RECEIVE 4% PROPERTY TAX DISCOUNT APPROACHES
Tuesday November 30th Is Deadline
11/23/10 - BARTOW
The Tax Collector reminds property owners that next Tuesday is the last day to take advantage of the 4% discount. Payments must be postmarked or conducted online on or before November 30 to receive the discount rate. Taxpayers may also pay in person by Tuesday at one of the Tax Collector's Branch Office locations, to take advantage of the maximum discount.
Payments postmarked after the November 30 deadline will not qualify for the 4% rate. Discount rates decrease one percentage point each month until March, at which time the full tax amount is due. Property tax bills become delinquent after March 31.
