Penalties adding up for tax delinquents

Penalties are adding up on overdue property tax payments, Huntington County Treasurer Brenda Hamilton says.

The fall installment of property tax payments was due on Nov. 13. For payments made after that date, a five percent penalty is assessed for taxpayers who have no previous delinquencies.

Beginning Dec. 13, an additional five percent penalty will be added, Hamilton says.

The penalty is an automatic 10 percent if earlier tax bills are delinquent.
