Penalty Rates 2014

Late Payment Penalties

If you pay your first half or second half property tax after the due dates, a penalty will be added to your tax. The later you pay, the greater the penalty you must pay.

If the due date for your second half property tax payment is November 15 and your property is classified as agricultural homestead property, the penalty rates for late payment are: 6% if you pay from November 16 through November 30; 8% if you pay from December 1 through January 1; and 10% if you pay on January 2, 2015 or later.

If the due date for your second half property tax payment is November 15 and your property is classified as agricultural non-homestead property, the penalty rates for late payment are: 8% if you pay from November 16 through November 30; 12% if you pay from December 1 through January 1; and 14% if you pay on January 2, 2015 or later.

Note: The taxes for personal property located on leased government-owned land may be paid in two installments which are due at the same time as real property taxes, and which
are subject to the same penalty schedule and penalty rates as real property taxes. All other personal property taxes are due in full on or before May 15, 2014.
