Property taxes due Nov. 15

By Sherri Ellington Over 9,000 tax bills were mailed out by the tax commissioner’s office the week before Buggy Days. The following week, tax commissioner Andrea Anthony was busy re-mailing less than 200 that were returned due to changes of address. ’If you haven’t received your tax bill it needs to be re-mailed,’ said Anthony. ‘Please contact the tax commissioner’s office so we can mail you a copy. They’re due Nov. 15.’ Anthony urges those who have received their bills and cannot pay them in a lump sum to come into the tax office to contract a payment plan before the due date. Interest on unpaid taxes kicks in on Dec. 1. Taxes that are not paid by the first week of March will be slapped with a $20 fi fa charge ‘“ which can end up on a taxpayer’s credit report for up to seven years ‘“ and a 10% penalty. Taxpayers can pay taxes Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the office or via the drive through, use the drop box after hours or pay online at lamarcounty.paytaxes.net.
