This week we would like to let the taxpayers know that Monday, August 15 will be the cut off date for any ownership or address changes for tax year 2011. For those of you who have moved and didn’t notify either the Treasure’s Office or the Assessor’s Office, your tax bill is going to the mailing address we have in our data base. Any changes that are made after this date will not reflect on the 2011 tax bill. An example, if you bought a piece of property and closed escrow after the 15th of August, you will not receive the tax bill the old owner will be the one to receive it. It will be up to the buyer and seller as to who pays the tax bill.
The taxing authorities have all submitted their budgets for 2011/2012 and the Board of Supervisors have had their meetings and the new tax rates have been set. The La Paz County Treasures Office will prepare the Assessor’s information and send it to the printer to have the Tax bills printed for the tax year 2011.
Your first installment payment is due October 1st and will be delinquent Nov 1st. If you wish to pay your taxes in full you may do so by December 31st without accruing interest. You should be receiving your 2011 Tax bill the later part of September.
We hope that if you had an address change you did not forget to contact our office. If you don’t receive your tax bill you might want to give the Treasurer’s Office a call to find if your tax bill was returned. You can reach the Treasure’s Office at (928) 669-6145, and they will be happy to assist you. As always call our office if you have any concerns or questions or tune in to KLPZ 1380 AM Country with Keith & Juanita.
Until Next Time…..
