The full payment or the first installment option is due on or before January 31.
If the first installment is not paid by January 31, the entire unpaid balance becomes delinquent (voiding all installment options) and is subject to interest and penalty effective February 1 at a rate of 1.5% per month (18% per year) until it is paid in full.

We urge taxpayers to mail payments several days early to avoid postal delay. You may consider going to the Post Office and having them hand-cancel your envelope to assure a timely postmark.
Missed payments must be made up the following month. If two payments are missed, the payment plan will be canceled and all remaining owed taxes become due immediately, and you could lose your property through the tax deed foreclosure process.
In the event current-year taxes become delinquent, the payment plan will be canceled and all remaining owed taxes will become due immediately, and you could lose your property through the tax deed foreclosure process.
