The collection of Delinquent (unpaid) Taxes, be it Real Estate, Manufactured Home or Personal Property, is a year-round process. Anyone falling behind in the payment of property tax is requested to contact the Treasurer’s Office so that the circumstances regarding the unpaid tax and the taxpayer’s options for payment arrangements can be discussed.
The treasurer is authorized to offer a number of installment plans to pay delinquent taxes. The installment plans run in length from a few months and extend out through five years.

Taxpayers utilizing or setting up a payment plan and subsequently adhering to such arrangements in terms of payments, will generally avoid any Legal/Foreclosure action instituted by the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
