It's that time of year again. The most dreaded time of year. Tax season. Grunt and groan all you like, but unfortunately, we all have to do it. I doubt you've forgotten the big one due April 15, but do you remember when your property taxes are due? Unless you want to be forking out more money to the government, It's important you pay these on time. Set-up reminders for yourself, write it on your bathroom mirror, whatever you have to do to not miss the date.

November 1 - First Installment Due. 

This covers the tax period from July 1 to December 31.

December 10 - First Installment Becomes Delinquent.  

At 5pm on the 10th of December, any unpaid first installments are now delinquent adding a 10% penalty to your taxes due. If the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday, delinquency is as of 5pm the next business day.

February 1 - Second Installment Due. 

This covers the period from January 1 to June 30.

April 10 - Second Installment Becomes Delinquent. 

Again, 5pm on the 10th of April, your second installment becomes delinquent if unpaid and a 10% penalty is tacked on to the total amount due. Same thing applies here, if the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday, delinquency is as of 5pm the next business day. 

April 10th is rapidly approaching and will be here before you know it. If you haven't already paid your property taxes for this installment, do yourself a favor and get on it. Don''t be the guy/gal that waits until the morning of the 10th to do this. This year the 10th falls on a Tuesday so, if you do miss the 5pm cut-off, you will be delinquent come Wednesday morning.
