Property taxes are due Tuesday and county offices will be closed Monday for Columbus Day.

Deadline to pay property taxes is Oct. 15, and the Crawford County Tax Collector office will be closed Monday for the national holiday.

"Credit card systems and other functions are working properly and no deadline extension is anticipated," said Crawford County Tax Collector Kevin Pixley.

Payments that are post marked or paid online on or before Oct. 15 will be credited as current payments, Pixley said. The credit card processing center charges a convenience fee of approximately 3 percent of the transaction amount.

Tax payments after Oct. 15 will be subject to a standard 10 percent penalty on personal. Real estate will have a 10 percent penalty and any interest that starts to accumulate on Oct. 16.

Publication and certification cost will also be charged on all delinquent accounts.

Commissioner of State Lands John Thurston released a statement encouraging county residents to pay their taxes on time.

Property taxes help fund public schools, libraries and emergency services that are essential to each county, Thurston said in the release. Failure to pay your taxes on time will result in additional costs.

"These taxes are vital to the counties across this state and without your tax dollars our communities will suffer," Thurston said.

If taxes are not paid within the following year real property taxes may be certified to the Commissioner of State Lands office for collection.

Staff in the commissioner’s office will accept payment until 4:30 p.m. for delinquent taxes.
