Payment of taxes is the responsibility of the owner. Tax statements are mailed in November. There are no second half reminders mailed. Your check is your receipt.

Real Estate Taxes
The first half of taxes are due by December 20. The second half are due by May 10. The full amount plus interest to date will need to be paid. You will receive a reminder letter for the delinquent taxes before they are published in the county newspaper in August.
If prior years are owed, they must be paid before the current year is paid. If taxes are due and unpaid for five years, the property is subject to a tax foreclosure sale by the county. The property will be sold at public auction.
Personal Property Taxes
After December 20 the full amount of personal property taxes (gas, oil, intangibles, heavy trucks and trailers) are due plus interest. Full-unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the sheriff for collection in March.
If the first half taxes are paid in December, the second half is due May 10. Second half unpaid personal property taxes are sent to the sheriff for collection in July.
You will receive a reminder letter before your taxes go to warrant. No motor vehicle renewals or original title work can be processed until delinquent personal property taxes are paid in full.
Tax bill corrections are initiated by the county appraiser. The county treasurer's office receives this information and issues a corrected tax statement.
