What if I did not receive a bill?
The Revenue Commissioner's Office mails Courtesy Tax Notices to all property owners October 1st of each year. This notice is sent as a courtesy and is not required by law. If you did not receive a notice for any reason, you must contact our office for a duplicate notice.
Past due tax accounts are subject to penalty and interest after December 31st of each year.
What happens if I don't pay my taxes?
Property tax is due each October 1st and is delinquent after December 31st of each year. All past due accounts receive a $5.00 penalty and accrue interest at a rate of 12% annually, compounded daily as of January 1st of each year.
Alabama State Law requires that property owners with unpaid tax accounts be notified by certified mail once in February and again in March.
There is a $5.00 citation fee added March 1st, a $5.00 citation fee added March 7th and another $5.00 citation fee added the day of the tax sale.
Alabama State Tax Law requires that all delinquent tax accounts are advertised in a local publication (newspaper) a total of three times in April.
The cost of advertisement and certified mailings are added to unpaid property tax accounts in addition to the citation fees, penalty and interest.
All delinquent property tax accounts are subject to auction if left unpaid after the third Tuesday of May (day of tax sale).
Before a delinquent account can be paid, an accurate calculation of penalties and interest must be added to the base tax amount. To obtain a payment amount for a delinquent tax account, please contact our Collections Department at (334) 832-1250.
