February delinquent notices for unpaid 2019 property taxes will soon be mailed. Thanks to legislation we successfully passed several years ago, homeowners unable to pay may sign up for a low penalty payment agreement. Recent legislation we successfully passed several years ago enables qualified seniors, disabled persons, disabled vets, spouses of disabled vets and those still recovering from recent disasters to pay seven (7%) percent penalty and interest by February 28 in order to take advantage of the one-quarter installment payment option.
