EUREKA - The second installment of Woodford County property tax bills is due this Friday. Property owners have several payment options, all of which are listed on the back of the tax bill. Taxes may be paid (by check or cash) in person in the treasurer’s office on the first floor of the county courthouse, at a participating bank in the county or by mail if postmarked on or before Friday. Checks should be made payable to Woodford County Collector and mailed to 115 N. Main St., Suite 105, Eureka, 61530. Taxes may also be paid with most major credit cards, debit cards or by e-xheck either over the Internet by visiting www.woodford-county.org and click on ”click here to Pay Property Taxes” or by phone to 1 (877) 637-1395. There will be a convenience fee of 2.35 percent plus $1.50 per transaction fee charged for credit card and debit card payments, and $2 charge for e-checks. Credit/debit card payments are not accepted in the office.
Taxes paid after the due date will be assessed a 1.5 percent penalty per month. There is a penalty calculation chart on the payment coupons of the bills showing the amounts to pay, including penalty, if paid after the due dates. If property owners did not receive a tax bill, they should contact the treasurer’s office or search the public information on the county website. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve the tax payer of the obligation to pay and penalties will be assessed if paid after the due date.
