When to Pay Property Tax


On February 1, current year taxes become delinquent and will incur penalty and interest.   

An additional collection penalty will be charged on accounts that are delinquent on April 1 for personal property or July 1 for real property.  Mineral accounts are considered real property. 

The collection penalty will be 15 percent or 20 percent of the total taxes, penalties and interest due, depending on your taxing jurisdiction.  After July, interest continues to accrue at 1 percent per month. 


Taxes not paid by January 31 will increase, unless the half payment or a quarterly installment is applied to the account.

Half Payments:  The first installment must be paid on or before November 30.  The second installment must be paid on or before June 30.

Installment Payments for Over 65 or Disability Exemption:  Due January 31, March 31, May 31 and July 31.


Penalty and Interest will be applied to accounts paid after the due date.
