General Information Regarding All Tax BillsIf a payment is late, interest accrues at the rate of 1.5% per month, 18% per annum from the due date. On August 2, 2022, there will be a late charge (interest) of 3% of the tax. This interest charge has been set by state law. When a delinquent tax bill is turned over for collection, interest, costs and fees will continue to accrue until paid in full.
