SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - A small gift when it comes to paying your property taxes in Greene County, you could have more time until the check is due.

Typically both real estate taxes and personal property taxes would be due by the end of the year, but this year is going to be a little different. Nothing has changed with real estate taxes. They are still due by December 31. But you can wait a little longer to mail your personal property check.

“I think people’s biggest concern is am I gonna be expected to pay that by December 31st if you didn’t get it out to me on time,” said Leah Betts, Greene County Collector of Revenue. “And the answer is no.”

These taxes, most commonly assessed on a persons car, truck or boat, have been delayed.

So if you’ve been worried because you haven’t gotten a personal property tax bill, you can relax for now.

“I’m still waiting for the tax calculations to be delivered to me from the clerk’s office, which I’m expecting, hopefully pretty soon.” said Betts “It’s been kind of a crazy year all around, but once I mail those out, there will be information in that mailing with an extended due date. Go to countycollector.com and look at that banner and they’ll be updated, so the moment that those personal property tax statements are available, that red banner will let people know.”

Something to keep in mind on those personal property tax extensions, those only apply to 2020 taxes. If you owe anything to prior year personal property taxes, you will want to pay those as soon as you can.
