A reminder that at least the first installment of your Effingham County property tax bill must be paid by this Friday to avoid a penalty for late payment.

The deadline for at least the first installment is Friday, August 10 and the deadline to pay the balance is Friday, October 12.  A 1-1/2% per month interest penalty will be assessed on late paid tax bills.

Payments can be made at any bank in Effingham County, by mail, or at the County Treasurer's Office, which is located on the second floor of the Effingham County Office Building.  Payments can also be made online by credit card.  See the back of your tax bill for instructions on paying online. 

Office hours at the County Treasurer's Office are 8am to 4pm.

Almost $41.3 million was extended for taxes for all taxing bodies in the county this year.
