Property Tax Deadline Tomorrow

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:12 PM CDT

If you've been holding off paying your property taxes, heads up: Thursday is the last day to pay up or you'll have to pay more.‬

‬Travis County officials are expecting big crowds at the main office on Airport Blvd. on Wednesday and Thursday. The deadline to pay inside is 5:30 p.m. Thursday, 5 p.m. at the satellite locations.  If you're mailing the check, make sure it's postmarked by midnight Thursday. You can also pay online. Credit cards will mean a 3% payment fee or an electronic check between $3 to $40. If you're paying online, make sure your bank postmarks it by then or you'll get hit with penalties and interest. About 95% percent of people pay on time, the highest collection rate in Texas.‪‬

"If people miss the deadline, 7% penalty and interest accrue immediately, and the longer that goes on, it could go up to 24% by the end of the year," said Bruce Elfant, Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector. "So we encourage people who aren't going to be able to pay all of their property taxes by the deadline to contact us and work out a payment plan."‬

Elfant says the county will start going after delinquent payments Friday, and that 99 percent of people typically pay by the end of the year.
