delinquencies is 1% per month, beginning February 1st.

Failure to receive a tax bill
does not relieve you of the obligation to pay the tax bill and applicable
If the 1st
installment is not paid by January 31st, the entire balance of
the tax bill is considered delinquent and is immediately due.
If you are
considering purchasing a property, it is always wise to check to make sure
the taxes on the property are current. Once you purchase a property,
any delinquent property taxes become your responsibility. If you are
purchasing title insurance or having an abstract updated, the title company
will check this for you.
Treasurerís Office is also responsible for receiving and depositing funds
from all county departments, investing county funds, processing accounts
payable and payroll checks, and administering the lottery credit program.
