Property Tax Late Charges

Taxes become delinquent if not paid by the due date. A delinquent tax incurs interest at the rate of 1% for the first month and an additional 1% for each month the tax remains delinquent.

In addition to interest, delinquent taxes incur the following penalties:

  • 6% for the first month
  • an additional 1% for each of the following 4 months
  • an additional 2% for the sixth month, for a total of 12%

Collection Fee

Current taxes remaining delinquent after June 30th during the first year of delinquency will incur an additional 15% collection fee.

If there is an existing lawsuit for earlier years, the 15% collection fee will be added immediately on the first regular business day in February.

NOTE: If the last day for the performance of an act is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal state or national holiday, the act is timely if performed on the next regular business day.
