Unpaid 2018 property taxes must be paid by March 31 to avoid court

Published 8:40 am Thursday, March 12, 2020

Carter County Trustee Randall Lewis in a notice to taxpayers this week said unpaid 2018 property taxes will be certified in Chancery Court April 1. At that time additional interest as well as court costs will be added to the tax bill.

To avoid this process, Lewis said payment can be made in person on or before March 31 or payments may be mailed, but they must be postmarked on or before March 31.

For those persons who qualify for the tax relief program for 2019 property taxes, the taxes must be paid on or before April 6 to be eligible.
