Prepayment & Partial Payment

For those county residents who like to budget, Washington County also offers the option to prepayments and partial payment of your property taxes.

  • Prepayments: An example would be a taxpayer would have the ability to pay on any tax not received from the state. The county usually receives the tax roll around early October. Once the tax roll is received from the state, each payment is applied to the current taxpayer.
  • Partial: Payments accepted for taxes that we currently have on our system, tax bills have been sent.

In both prepayment and partial payments, 1.5% interest will be assessed on the unpaid balance beginning on March 1st and each month until paid in full. In all cases, if the total tax bill is not paid by April 1st of the following year the balance would be transferred to the Clerk and Master of collection.
