If you still owe 2018 Real Estate Taxes, you may soon face a lien on your property and extra charges. Pay your past due Real Estate Tax bill by December 31 to avoid:
- A lien on your property, which will include a $91.45 charge
- Additional interest (0.75%) and penalty (1%) charges on your bill, every month
- Collection fees of between 10% and 18%, if we send your bill to a collection agency or a law firm
If added to your property tax bill, these charges and fees will sink you much deeper into debt. Eventually, your property could be sold at Sheriff Sale.
Please avoid more charges and fees by paying your 2018 Real Estate Tax today. There are several, convenient ways to settle your bill.
