Property Tax Bills Due At The End Of The Month

Putnam County trustee Freddie Nelson says that local property owners now have less than three weeks remaining to pay their 2010 property taxes without a penalty.  The deadline for payment is February 28th, which falls on a Monday this year.  After the deadline, penalties and interest begin to be applied to the amount of tax due at the rate of one and a half percent per month. Nelson says, right now, about half of us have paid our current property tax bill, although more people have been coming to the Trustee's office in recent days to take care of it. Notices were first mailed out to property owners back in October. Anyone with questions about their tax bill can call the Trustee's office at 526-8845.
