Want To Save On Your Taxes? Today Is The Deadline

January 31, 2010

If you want to save 2% on your property tax bill, payments must be made by Sunday.

Janet Holley, Escambia County Tax Collector, said that the 2% discount to pay real estate and tangible personal property taxes ends Sunday, January 31. Since the deadline falls during the weekend when the offices are closed, offices will honor the 2% discount Monday, February 1 for in-person payments only.

In addition, payments will receive the 2% discount if:

  • mailed with a postmark of January 31;
  • left in a 24-hour drop box available at all offices by midnight January 31;
  • made on the tax collector’s web site by midnight January 31;
  • made on the tax collector’s after-hours automated telephone (800) 601‑1055 by midnight January 31;

Drive thru service and 24-hour drop boxes are available at all locations.

You may check the status of your taxes and pay online at www.escambiataxcollector.com. 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.)
