Property tax is normally due by March 31 in the year following the year the taxes are assessed.

The Department waives the due date so that payments remitted by April 15, 2020, for the 2019 tax year will be considered timely paid.

Property taxpayers who have additional questions should contact their local county tax collector’s office.
