Payment

The due date for property tax is due depends on location. The deadlines vary considerably. Some property taxes are paid annually, and some are paid in two, three, or four installments. Some jurisdictions allow for monthly tax payments. The collection office nearest the property owner will have more information on payment options. A few of these are:

  • Credit card payments
  • Discounts for early payment
  • Escrow agreements
  • Extensions
  • Partial payments
  • Split payments

In some areas, homeowners pay their property tax through escrow accounts. The tax bill is incorporated with the mortgage payment. Thus, the mortgage-holder pays the tax bill out of these combined funds.
