Floyd County Tax Commissioner Kevin Payne reminds all taxpayers that 2012 property taxes must be paid by the end of the day today in order to avoid a 10 percent late penalty and to avoid a lien being placed against the property and property owner.

According to release from Payne’s office, the 2012 property taxes were due on November 15, 2012.  To date, the Tax Commissioner’s office has collected 94 percent of the $81 million billed for City, County and school property taxes.  By law, a 10 percent penalty is added to the original amount of taxes due 90 days after the due date, which falls on February 14th.  Additionally, any tax bill that is still unpaid after the 13th will have a lien filed against the property and property owner.

Checks, cash or credit cards are offered by the Tax Commissioner’s office in the historic Floyd County courthouse on 5th Avenue in downtown Rome. The office is open 8 am until 5 pm. Bills can also be paid online at www.floydcountytax.com.  The Tax Office will accept letters postmarked by February 13th, but anyone that pays after today will have the penalty added in addition to the lien cancellation charge.  Partial payments will be accepted, but do not stop late charges from being added.  For more information, call the tax office at (706) 291-5148.  You can also email Tax Commissioner Kevin Payne at paynek@floydcountyga.org.  Payoff amounts can be viewed online at www.floydcountytax.com.
