Donna D. Yarnell, county tax collector, is reminding all taxpayers that the first installment of real property taxes will become delinquent if not paid by 5 p.m. Monday.
Payments must be in office by 5 p.m. or bear a postmark of Dec. 10. Delinquent parcels will receive a 10 percent penalty.
Property owners who have paid their taxes through impound accounts but have refinanced recently or paid off their home loans should be aware they may be responsible for paying the bills themselves.
