April 30th Deadline to Apply to Pay 2017 Taxes by Installment

The quarterly installment plan enables a taxpayer to pay real estate taxes in four payments rather than one. In order to qualify to pay the 2017 taxes by installment, your 2016 taxes must be more than $100. The application is due April 30th. Once a property is on the installment plan, it is automatically re-enrolled each year. To take a property off the plan, do not make the first payment in June. The property will be dropped from the installment plan and the annual tax bill will be mailed in November.

Tax receipts are available to print from our website 24/7. Please note, if you itemize your deductions, any non-ad valorem assessments on the tax bill may not be deductible on your federal income tax return. You may want to discuss this with a tax professional.
