November 24-26, 2022: Front Office CLOSED for Thanksgiving holiday.

November 29-30, 2022: Front Office CLOSED, per state auditor's office, to reconcile financial accounts and prepare for transfer of accounts to new administration.
December 1, 2022: Property Tax Collection can resume under new administration, barring no delays in financial reconciliation and transfer of accounts from the state auditor's office.
December 5, 2022: 2% Discount extended on all unpaid property tax payments through close-of-business.
A message from the Sheriff's Office:
We realize this is the beginning of property tax season and closing the front office at the end of the 2% Discount month may cause some confusion; however, with the extension date of December 5th, property tax owners are being given the same amount of time to pay with a discount, as they would have been given, had the office not been closed. This closure would have had to happen at the end of year, just as it is happening this month, so we ask for everyone to please have patience and understanding. Our front office employee has been working diligently and will continue to do so to ensure all property tax payments received through close of business on November 28th are processed; any payment received after that will be the responsibility of the new administration and again, we ask for your patience and understanding, as there may be a slight delay in the processing time for those payments. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call the office (270-597-2157) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
