3% Property Tax Discount Ends December 31

All four tax collector offices will be open Friday, December 30, during normal business hours 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., according to Escambia County Tax Collector, Janet Holley. Persons paying their 2011 real estate and tangible personal property taxes who want to receive the 3% discount and have the receipt dated for 2011 must make their payments by that date. Payments made on December 31 will be accepted if: mailed with a postmark, paid on our website or by after-hours automated telephone (800) 601-1055, or left in a 24-hour drop box available at all offices.

Since all offices are closed December 31, January 1 and 2, customers who make their payments in person at any tax collector office Tuesday, January 3, will receive the 3% discount, however, their payment will be dated January 3, not December 31.

You may check the status of your taxes and pay online at www.escambiataxcollector.com. If you have any questions, please call the tax collector’s office at 438-6500, ext. 252.

All offices will be closed December 23 and 26
in observance of the Christmas holiday
and January 2 for the New Year.
