Property owners in Franklin County and across Idaho have until this Tuesday, Dec. 20, at 5 p.m. to pay their first-half, 2011 property tax payments.
Those who fail to meet the deadlines are subject to a 2-percent penalty for the entire taxable amount, beginning Dec. 21. A 12 percent annual interest penalty is assessed on Jan. 1, 2012.
McKay emphasized the state’s property tax reduction program, formerly called the Circuit Breaker, is a method senior citizens (65 years old and older) and widows can utilize to get taxes reduced. Contact the assessor for information.
