Rowan County residents have until Wednesday to pay their 2010 property tax bill, or pay a penalty.
Janet Phillips, deputy tax collector for the county, said property owners who haven’t paid their bill by Thursday will be charged 2 percent of the unpaid balance.
Another three-quarters of a percent will be added on the first of each month following.
After 30 days of delinquency, Phillips said, the county can offset a person’s income tax refund.
“We can take some or all of it to pay delinquent taxes,” she said.
If a property owner can’t pay the bill in full, Phillips recommends that the person come to the county tax office to set up an agreement to pay in installments.
Payment agreement forms also are available on the county’s website and can be mailed in with the first payment.
Delinquencies will be advertised in March or later, Phillips said. The county would like last year’s tax bills to be paid in full before the next ones are sent out July 1.
Phillips said Monday she didn’t know how many people have yet to pay their tax bills, but “based on Friday and today, there’s still quite a few.”
For more information, call the county tax collector’s office at 704-216-8544 or visit www.rowancountync.gov and select “Tax Collector” from the “Departments” menu.Contact reporter Karissa Minn at 704-707-4222.
