Staff report

The deadline to pay delinquent Liberty County property taxes is next week.
Tax Commissioner Virgil Jones reports that delinquency letters, sent to property owners who failed to pay their for 2006 property taxes by the Feb. 20 deadline, were mailed on March 13. The 30-day notice is required by law as part of the delinquent tax collection process that can ultimately end with a tax sale.
Another deadline that Jones reminds residents of is the 2007 mobile home taxes. Notices were mailed late this year, March 15. Mobile home bills are normally issued around the first week in February and due on May 1 each year. This year, however, mobile home notices were delayed because of a delay in solid waste assessment fee information from that department.
“Therefore, 2007 mobile home taxes are due by June 1st this year,” the commissioner said.
Below is Jones’ report from the final quarter of 2006:
