Are there any discounts for early payment of Property taxes in Putnam County, FL?
After real estate taxes become delinquent on April 1st of each year, they are advertised in a local newspaper once a week for three consecutive weeks.
On or before June 1st, the Putnam County Tax Collector must conduct a tax certificate sale on each unpaid parcel of property. When a tax certificate is sold against a piece of property, the successful bidder pays the delinquent taxes on that property and then receives a receipt which also constitutes a first lien against the property. A taxpayer could pay interest up to the rate of 18% per year. This rate depends on the interest rate that was bid on at the tax certificate sale.
Can I make Installment Payments for property taxes in Putnam County, FL?
Yes, the law allows taxpayers to pay their taxes on an alternative payment plan (installment plan) if they choose and if their estimated taxes, collected pursuant to Chapter 197, are more than $100.00. The taxpayer must submit an application to the Putnam County Tax Collector before May 1 and make the first payment no later than June 30 of that tax year.
The taxpayer officially enrolls in the installment payment plan by making the first payment by the June deadline. Continued participation is required for the remainder of that tax year. Annual renewal is automatic as long as the June payment is made each year.
A taxpayer that elects the installment method pays based on an estimated tax equal to the actual taxes for the preceding year. Following is the payment schedule:
1st Installment: ¼ the total estimated taxes discounted 6% Payment required by June 30. Failure to pay first installment would put you back to the annual payment plan (single bill sent in November).
2nd Installment: ¼ the total estimated taxes discounted 4.5% Payment required by September 30.
3rd Installment: ¼ the total estimated taxes plus ½ of any adjustment for actual tax liability discounted 3%. Payment required by December 31.
4th Installment: ¼ the total estimated taxes plus or minus the other ½ of any adjustment for actual tax liability. No discount. Payment required by March 31.
Delinquent installment payments must be paid in full with the next installment. Any amount remaining unpaid on April 1 is treated as delinquent taxes.
