Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon reminds property owners that the deadline to enroll in the property tax installment payment plan is April 30. Under the plan, enrollees pay four smaller installments, instead of one lump sum.
“Quarterly payments can be easier for many,” Gannon said. “Over 21,000 property owners are now in the plan. Plus, enrollees receive a discount of slightly under 4 percent.”
Any property owner with estimated taxes over $100 qualifies. Enrollment requires completing a one-page application. Applications are available online at www.taxcollectorpbc.com or at any tax collector service location. Re-enrollment is automatic.
The quarterly payments are due in June, September, December and March. If the June payment is missed, the property owner is automatically removed from the plan. There is no financial penalty for missing the June deadline.
The Installment Payment Plan is authorized in Florida Statutes, Chapter 197.222.
