Clinton County Treasurer Carol Bartley has released information about the fall due date for taxes in addition to information on the tax sale that was held Wednesday in the Commissioners Meeting Room of the Clinton County Courthouse.
The due date for the second installment of property taxes is November 13, 2017. The typical due date for fall taxes is November 10, but due to the courthouse being closed on Friday, November 10, for observation of the Veteran’s Day holiday, the due date will be extended to Monday, November 13, 2017.
In order to avoid the long lines of taxpayers that will pay that week, Bartley is urging individuals to consider paying their taxes early. The Treasurer accepts cash, check, credit/debit card in the office during normal office hours of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday from 8 a.m. to noon.
Individuals may also pay online at clintonco.com, or by phone at 1-866-480-8552 with our new lower convenience fee of 2.5 percent. Payments with coupon only will also be accepted at First Financial Bank in Rossville. There is also a drop box located on the north side of the Courthouse Square.
