Yes, it is possible for property to be sold for delinquent taxes. A lawsuit for tax lien foreclosure can be filed with the District Clerk’s office and a judgment subsequently granted by the court. The Delinquent Tax Attorney, with approval from the Potter County Tax Office, can then proceed to tax sale.
Yes. Please indicate on your check the tax year you wish to apply your money towards.
We can set up a monthly installment agreement for payment of delinquent taxes only after they have become delinquent (February 1st). If you wish to pay monthly on taxes before they become delinquent, you may do so between October 1st and January 31st. However, we do not set up any type of agreement for current taxes. If you wish to pre-pay your taxes before the tax statements are mailed, you may do so by way of an escrow agreement, which is based on estimated taxes for the upcoming year.
Statements are mailed out in October each year. If you have not received your statement by mid-November, it is your responsibility to notify us so that we can send out another statement. Taxes are due upon receipt of the statement and become delinquent on February 1st.
Contact our office to request a statement be mailed directly to you.
It is not necessary to receive a bill in order to pay your taxes. It is your responsibility as the property owner to ensure you receive a tax statement and that the taxes are paid on time. Taxes are due at the same time every year. If you have not received your statement by mid-November, it is your responsibility to notify us so that we can send out another statement.
All businesses are taxed on their personal property, such as furniture, fixtures, inventory, machinery, equipment, etc. The statement you received is for your business personal property and not for the real estate. The real estate is taxed separately and the statement is sent directly to the property owner.
Please contact the Potter/Randall Appraisal District with questions concerning value. Placing a taxable value on property is not a function of the Potter County Tax Assessor-Collector.
Please return the statement to this office with a note.
The Potter/Randall Appraisal District is responsible for determining the ownership of each property. Upon request, we can send you an address change form that you can send to the Appraisal District or you can get the form directly from them.
The appraised value as set by the Potter/Randall Appraisal District may be more than it was last year, and/or the tax rates may have increased over last year. The taxable value and the tax rates for the taxing jurisdictions are listed on your statement.
You will receive a revised statement once this office receives the adjustment from the Potter/Randall Appraisal District.
