Today Is Deadline To Pay Escambia County Property, Tangible Taxes

March 31, 2019

Escambia County Tax Collector Scott Lunsford is reminding local residents that 2018 unpaid real estate and tangible property taxes become delinquent April 1. Penalties of three percent for real estate taxes and one and one-half percent for tangible taxes will be assessed. To avoid the penalty, payment must be made by March 31.

Payment options include:

  • online by midnight CDT, March 31, at EscambiaTaxCollector.com;
  • mailed with a March postmark;
  • left by midnight CDT, March 31 in a 24-hour drop box available at all locations; or
  • by phone at (850) 438-6500, ext. 3252 by close of business March 29.

Since the deadline falls during the weekend, when all offices are closed, customers can make their payment in person without penalty on current 2018 taxes at any tax collector office on Monday, April 1.

Taxpayers are encouraged to visit the tax collector’s virtual office at EscambiaTaxCollector.com to pay online 24 hours a day. Online services allow customers to pay their taxes, search records, print receipts, renew vehicle and vessel registrations and many other services. Customers who decide to visit one of four offices can join the line online at EscambiaTaxCollector.com and manage their time their way. Citizens select an office location and type of service, receive a message with approximate service time and then continue their regular activities until the service time approaches.

Customers can visit the payment center at EscambiaTaxCollector.com to check the status of property taxes, pay online or print a receipt. Taxpayers are encouraged to contact the tax collector’s office by email ectc@EscambiaTaxCollector.com or by phone with any questions.
