MILLEDGEVILLE — Property tax bills are due Friday. 

Baldwin County Tax Commissioner Cathy Settle said normal office hours are extended from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. until close on Friday.

The office will accept payments postmarked by the final date.

Visa and MasterCard are accepted in the tax office with a small convenience fee.

Settle said certain windows are dedicated to property taxes.

“If you are visiting our office to pay taxes, we have several property tax-only windows. We hope this will speed up the process,” Settle said.

After the due date, there is a 1 percent interest fee per month and 90 days after the due date a 10 percent penalty is added. Real property includes tax on land and improvements. Personal property refers to tax on furniture, fixtures, tools, inventory and equipment used in the operation of a business.
