What happens if I miss the tax payment deadline?
From the first day of each month beginning March 2, 2020, interest of 1.5 percent per month (18 percent annually) is added to your base tax amount. If the Post Office fails to postmark your payment by the date due, it is considered a late payment. This applies even if you mail your payment on time. For mail-in payments, office meter dates are not accepted. Online property tax payments are recognized as paid on the date of the online transaction.
