Uvalde County residents among other Texan counties have four more weeks to pay their 2020 property tax bill without penalty.
Tax bills will become delinquent on Feb. 1, 2021, and interest will accrue at 7 percent.
For bills not paid in February, the penalty will increase in March to an additional 9 percent; April, 11 percent; May, 13 percent; and June, 15 percent.
For tax bills not paid in June, the penalty will increase in July to 18 percent, as well as an additional 15 percent collection fee, which will be applied to the base tax, penalty, and interest, as per the Uvalde County Appraisal District (UCAD) website.
This year’s overall tax levy, which UCAD is responsible for collecting is $43.033 million.
Taxpayers should contact UCAD for payment arrangements or assistance on paying delinquent taxes.
According to the state comptroller’s office, failure to receive a tax bill does not affect the validity of the tax, penalty or interest due, the delinquency date, the existence of a tax lien, or any procedure the taxing unit institutes to collect the tax.
The next meeting for the UCAD board of directors is set for Jan. 19, at 5:45 p.m. in the board room located at 209 N. High St.
