FLAGSTAFF— Coconino County Treasurer Bonny Lynn reminds property owners that the second installment of their Tax Year 2012 Real and Personal Property Tax payment is due and will be considered delinquent after 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 1.
The Tax Notice for the 2012 property taxes was mailed in September and the first half-installment was due Nov. 1. Property owners could have paid the full-year tax amount by Dec. 31 without a late penalty.
The County Treasurer is the legally responsible party for collecting taxes for all taxing jurisdictions within Coconino County. However, each taxing jurisdiction is responsible for its own tax levy, as established by their individually elected Board of Directors.
The Property Tax Notice was mailed to each property owner regardless of mortgage status. If a property owner has a mortgage impound account for taxes and their mortgage company pays the taxes, the notice should be regarded as informational only.
Partial payments are accepted, but interest will accrue on the unpaid balance when the delinquency date has passed. Tax payments may be made by cash, check or credit/debit card in person at the Treasurer’s Office, 110 E. Cherry Avenue, 2nd floor, Flagstaff, AZ 86001; or by mailing a check.
Tax payments via electronic bank bill payment and those paid with personal check will be treated as an ACH transaction. Citizens are reminded there is a convenience fee for use of a debit or credit card. Instructions for paying with a credit/debit card via the internet can be found on the Treasurer’s website at www.coconino.az.gov/treasurer.
For taxpayer convenience – and due to lack of parking at the 110 E. Cherry building – a white drop-mail box is located near the flagpole inside the parking lot. Payment envelopes may be dropped in the box.
