Property tax statements go out today

ENID, Okla. — Property tax statements for 2012 will be mailed today, but also are available online now, the county treasurer’s office said.

Taxes are available online and accessible for payment at www.gctrea

Garfield County Treasurer Kevin Postier said there are 37,400 statements totaling more than $45.7 million to be collected for 2012 taxes. About 7,000 statements were sent to service agent companies that will pay the $5.8 million tax debt electronically.

Postier is encouraging individuals to pay their tax liability online using eCheck, a new service provided for 2012 taxes that can be executed from home at no cost to the taxpayer.

Property owners still can mail in their payments, pay in person at the Garfield County Court House or utilize the drive-through drop box installed on the north side of the courthouse, according to Postier’s office.

The first of each taxpayer’s bill is due on or before Dec. 31, with the remainder due by March 31, Postier said. Taxes are delinquent if no payment is made by Jan. 1.

A 1.5-percent penalty is assessed on the unpaid balance each month beginning Jan. 16, if the first half is not received before the Jan. 1 delinquency date.

Postier said 84 percent of tax dollars collected by the treasurer’s office will be disbursed to public schools. Twelve percent go into the county general fund, 3 percent to the county health department and the remaining 1 percent to the city of Enid.
