Friday is the deadline to pay the second installment of your Effingham County property tax bill if you want to avoid a penalty for late payment.

There is a 1-1/2% per month interest penalty assessed for late payment of property tax bills.

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

The County Treasurer's Office is open weekdays between 8am and 4pm.  The office is closed today in observance of Columbus Day.
