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 Real Estate and Tax Services. To obtain a copy of your tax statement, use the Property Tax Inquiry.

Penalty for Late Payment of Property Tax 

If you pay your first half or second half property tax after the due dates, a penalty will be added to your tax. The later you pay, the greater the penalty. The table below shows the penalty if your property taxes ar not paid before the date shown.

Agricultural Homesteads: If the due date for second half payment is November 15 and property is classified as agricultural homestead property, the penalty rates for late payments are: 6% if payed from November 17 - November 30; 8% from December 1 - January 1; and 10% for January 2 or later.

Agricultural Non-Homesteads: If the due date for second half payment is November 15 and property is classified as agricultural non-homestead, the penalty rates for late payments are: 8% from November 17 - November 30; 12% from December 1 - January 1; and 14% for January 2 or later.

Note: The taxes for personal property located on leased government owned land may be paid in two installments which are due at the same time as real property taxes, and which are subject to the same penalty schedule andj penalty rates as real property taxes. All other personal property taxes are due in full on or before May 15.
