March Last Month To Pay 2013 Property Taxes
West Palm Beach, FL - - - Anne Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector, reports that slightly under 11% of Palm Beach County property owners still owe 2013 property taxes. This represents $267,309,369 in uncollected revenue. “March is the last month to pay 2013 taxes,” says Gannon. “Local governments count on this revenue to pay for critical services including law enforcement, fire and rescue and education.”
Gannon’s office mailed 74,000 reminder notices to property owners with outstanding property taxes on February 28. Payments can be made online, at service locations or via mail. Mail payments must be postmarked on or before March 31. Wire transfers are also accepted. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
Property owners are encouraged not to wait until the last minute. Unpaid taxes after April 1 are delinquent and accrue 3 percent interest monthly. Last minute payments with errors could result in payments going into delinquency. The most common taxpayer mistakes are bank account or routing number errors, bank bill pay delivery delays, incorrect payment amounts and insufficient funds in the taxpayer’s bank account.
