Tax day has come and gone, but officials in Todd County are urging those who failed to pay their property taxes to make it right as soon as possible.
Todd County Attorney Mac Johns told those present at this morning’s Fiscal Court meeting that 361 property tax bills are delinquent. Sheriff Joey Johnson said those bills equated to 91-thousand dollars in all, though only a fraction of that amount was due to county government.
Judge-Executive Darryl Greenfield says the county is more than willing to work with someone on a payment plan—but those delinquent need to contact the county attorney’s office as soon as possible.
Judge Greenfield says if the delinquent payers don’t make any efforts to pay their bills, the county will ultimately turn it over to a collection agency which will assess hefty fees and interest.
Todd County Treasurer Tammy Robertson said the county’s budget continues to look good, with only one transfer needed so far this fiscal year. Fiscal Court will have a special-called meeting Tuesday evening at 7 to look over Judge Greenfield’s proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
