If you pay your first half and second half property tax after the due dates, a penalty will be added to your tax. The later you pay, the greater the penalty you must pay. This table (in the linked Late Penalty Penalty Schedule above) shows the penalty you will pay if your property taxes due are not paid before the date shown.
To avoid a penalty envelopes must be postmarked by the due date to be considered paid on time.
If the due date for your second half property tax payment is November 15 and your property is classified as agricultural homestead property, the penalty rates for late payment are: 6% if you pay from November 16 - November 30; 8% if you pay from December 1 - January 1; and 10% if you pay on January 2 or later.
