PROPERTY TAX DEADLINE EXTENDED AGAIN

Jan. 3, 2002 – The deadline for paying property taxes has been extended a second time, from Dec. 31, 2001, to Jan. 11, Gov. Charles W. Turnbull announced in a press release.
"This means the real property tax bill can be paid without penalty through Jan. 11, 2002," he said.
He said the extension was given because Finance Department offices were closed for the Christmas and New Year's holidays as well as the days when the governor granted employees administrative leave over the holiday season.
Property taxes originally were due Aug. 31, but in November Turnbull extended the deadline to Nov. 30, saying tax bills had been sent out late. They went out July 25, which Turnbull said was not enough time to make payment by Aug. 31.
Taxpayers had a one-month grace period after the Nov. 30 deadline, which brought the actual payment due date without penalty to Dec. 31.
The last day to file a property tax assessment appeal remains Jan. 15.
