If you are a new homeowner, you are probably becoming familiar with the news that the due date for property taxes like the holidays arrive in December.
In our sales meeting on Monday, someone from our team shared that they were going to drive to the city to personally deliver their taxes when I shared the news that you can pay your taxes online. Â Since even our sales team didn’t know about this great option, I thought it was certainly worth sharing with you!
This is a simple way to further your Green efforts Â and save time. Â Be sure to allow enough time for the payment to process.
Counties offer options to pay by e-check or credit card. Â Some counties do not charge a fee when you pay with an e-check, however there is always extra fee from credit card companies that the counties pass onto property owners. Â See below for more information
