Property Taxes Due

By  | 

This weekend marks the deadline for Eau Claire residents to pay their second half of the year property taxes.

The county treasurer’s office says they are expecting more than half of Eau Claire County's 40,000 homeowners to pay property taxes before Sunday's deadline. So far, only 8,000 have been issued receipts.

Larry Lokken says missing the deadline is costly.

"If they miss, it's 10.5 percent interest and that goes all the way back to the first of the year. If that's the case and they have a $1,000 tax bill, that's another $105," says Lokken.

Lokken suggests that if you are planning on mailing your payment to have it postmarked by Saturday, July 30, otherwise stop by their office in the county building.
