March Last Month To Pay 2012 Property Taxes
West Palm Beach, FL - - - Anne Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector, reminds property owners March is the final month to pay 2012 property taxes. The office mailed 68,819 reminder notices to property owners who had outstanding 2012 taxes as of March 10. This represents just under 1% of the 704,386 property owners who were sent tax bills in November 2012.
“Revenue from collections goes to the county and local taxing districts,” Gannon said. “These taxes pay for critical services we all rely on including law enforcement, fire and rescue, education, and health care services.”
There is no discount on taxes paid in March. All unpaid taxes after April 1 accrue 3 percent interest. Florida Statutes require unpaid properties to be subject to Tax Certificate sale once taxes are 60 day delinquent. Tax Warrants are issued on all unpaid personal property taxes.
Personal property may be seized and sold to pay the delinquent taxes.
