I recently received my 2013 property tax statement. It was mailed so that I would have an additional 21 days to pay before the due date. How thoughtful.
I have not been able to receive an answer to the comment I am about to make, so here is hoping one of your readers can help out: I cannot understand why I can’t seem to pay my property taxes by the month. I can pay $100 per month much easier than $1,200 at one time. I wouldn’t even mind paying a small amount more (a 5- or 10-percent handling fee) to be able to do this. I think I am like a lot of folks –a senior on a fixed income.
So, as Mr. Kendrick said in his letter – “in an effort to give taxpayers as much flexibility as possible” – I would welcome a monthly payment plan. But, like a lot of suggestions, it makes sense so it probably won’t work!
