In the Collector’s Office, we collect taxes for the county, school, and improvement districts. The taxes collected are turned over to the County Treasurer on a monthly basis for distribution to the taxing entities. These taxes are payable from March 1 through October 15 during the calendar year after the year of assessment. Any real or personal taxes not paid by October 15 are considered delinquent and the collector extends a 10% penalty against the taxpayer (ACA 26-35-501). WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHECKS FOR DELINQUENT TAXES
Before December 1st of each year, the collector of taxes shall prepare a list of delinquent personal property and real estate taxes and deliver a copy of the list to a legal newspaper in the county.
