Office Information

Tax bills are mailed out by the Township Collectors usually by the middle of November.  Current real estate and personal property tax statements are payable to the 20 Township Collectors from November 1st through December 31st without interest and penalty.  Mailed tax payments must have an official US Post Office postmark on or before December 31st to be considered as paid on time.  Any delinquent real estate and personal property taxes owed must be paid before the Township Collectors can accept your current payment.  Township Collectors will continue to collect until March 1st after which time they will turn all unpaid taxes over to this office.  If paying after December 31st, please refer to the delinquency schedule printed on your tax statement.  If you do not receive a statement by December 1st, please contact the Carroll County Assessorís office at (660) 542-2184. Not receiving a tax statement does not relieve your obligation to pay your taxes.
