Today’s The Last Day To Save On Your Property Taxes

December 31, 2009

Today is the last day to pay your Escambia County real estate and tangible personal property taxes and save a little money. A three percent discount is available on those taxes, but only if you pay up by the close of business today.

All four tax collector offices will be open normal business hours on Thursday, December 31, according to Escambia County Tax Collector Janet Holley.

In order to receive the three discount and have your tax payment posted with a December date, payment must be:

  • received in the tax collector’s office by close of business December 31;
  • made on the tax collector’s web site by midnight December 31; or
  • made on the after-hours automated telephone (800) 601-1055 by midnight December 31.

In addition, payments mailed with a December 31 postmark or left in the tax collector’s 24‑hour drop boxes after hours on December 31 will receive the three discount but will be dated in January.

You may check the status of your taxes and pay online at If you have any questions, call the tax collector’s office at 438-6500, ext. 252. (TTY users for the hearing impaired call 850-472-0031.)
