I am writing this letter to inform landowners of their options for paying delinquent taxes. Landowners may have been misinformed regarding their options. This explanation will clarify any misleading information regarding how payments can be made.
Option 1: A five-pay plan which takes 2.5 years to become current, one-fifth of delinquent taxes plus current one-half year taxes.
Option 2: A 10-pay plan which takes five years to become current, one-tenth of delinquent taxes plus current one-half year taxes.
Extra payments can be made at any time as long as your payment is made for your first half and second half taxes. Any extra will be adjusted at the end of the payment contract. These payment plans keep taxes current so penalty and interest does not calculate.
Option 3: If you cannot make payment on either of the two above plans, you can make weekly, bi-weekly or monthly payments. I accept any payments the landowners can make to get their delinquent taxes paid. This option does not stop penalty and interest.
The [Gallia County] Treasurer’s Office is willing to work with any landowner to resolve your delinquent taxes. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact my office staff from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at (740) 446-4612 ext. 252.
Thanks for your time and consideration regarding this matter pertaining to Gallia County delinquent taxes.
Gallia County Treasurer
