Putnam Trustee Issues Tax Penalty Reminder

Putnam County Trustee Freddie G. Nelson is reminding local residents that their 2010 property taxes are now considered delinquent and are accruing penalties and interest at the rate of one and a half percent per month.  On a tax bill of one thousand dollars, that's fifteen bucks a month.  Nelson says you can pay your property taxes at his office between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday.  The Trustee's office has also now re-located and can be found on the bottom floor of the county courthouse. That's the entrance that comes off of Broad Street.  If you have any questions, you can call 526-8845.
