Knox County Treasurer Shelley Coon reminds property owners that real estate property taxes are due on Friday.
Payments may be made by cash, check or money order in the treasurer’s office, which is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Credit cards payments can be made online or by calling 1-800-272-9829 using jurisdiction code 8436. Official Payments, the service provider, does charge a fee.
Payments are also accepted at any First-Knox National Bank branch within Knox County through the due date, as long as taxpayers present their statement for payment.
Mailed payments must be postmarked at the Post Office by Feb. 5 to avoid a penalty.
Property owners are responsible for paying their taxes even if a statement is not received. Those who have not received a statement should contact the treasurer’s office at 740-393-6735.
