Property tax bills were mailed in September, and if you haven’t received it yet, you need to contact the Yavapai County Treasurer’s office right away. According to Arizona State Law, the property owner is responsible for making sure they have the payment information. Penalties and/or interest cannot be excused because the bill was not received by the taxpayer.
Taxes for the first half are due on October 1. They are considered delinquent on November 1, and will be assessed tax liens and interest charges at the rate of 16%. The interest will be prorated at 1.333% per month as of the first day of the month. Additional fees may also be assessed.
However, if you choose to pay the full year amount instead of just half, you can pay by December 31 of the current tax year, and. you will incur no penalties or interest charges.
If you have a lien on back taxes, the payment must be made in the form of a cashier’s check, money order or cash. The Yavapai County Treasurer can provide information on the outstanding amount due.
Payments can be made online. You must pay the exact amount, or it may result in a voided transaction.
