Interest will be charged at the rate of 8% on the first $1,500 of delinquency and 18% on any amount of delinquency over $1,500 until such time as taxes are paid current. Payment is applied first to all delinquent interest and then to the oldest principal balance. There is a 10 day grace period, however, interest accrues from the original due date for any payments made thereafter. If the 10th day falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next working day to make payment. We cannot accept postmarks. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or the interest due on past due taxes.
