Escambia County Tax Collector Offers Partial Payment Plan for Property Taxes

Scott Lunsford, Escambia County Tax Collector, offers help for those taxpayers who may need to make partial payments for their 2019 property taxes.

If a property owner decides to make partial payments, the following information applies:

  • Property owner must submit an application (found on the back of the tax bill, available at the tax collector’s office and on our website) with initial partial payment.
  • Partial payments are accepted for current year taxes only from November 1 until March 31.
  • No discount allowed for partial payments.
  • A $10 processing fee deducted from each partial payment.
  • Partial payments are not accepted after March 31, and any remaining balance as of April 1 is delinquent and subject to all applicable penalties and fees.
