Note: If a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is extended to the next succeeding business day.
Please be aware that failure to receive a bill does not relieve your obligation to pay the tax due by the due date. Failure to pay the tax due by the due date will result in a late payment penalty of 10% or a $10.00 (minimum) being assessed. An annual interest of 10% begins January 1 (First half) and July 1 (Second half).
