Franklin urges residents to pay property tax bills sooner rather than later
FRANKLIN — Taxpayers are urged to get their property tax bills in as early as possible after an administrative issue caused bills to be sent out late.
These bills will be mailed Friday and won't be due until Jan. 10, the Concord Monitor reported.
Franklin City Manager Elizabeth Dragon told the Monitor that municipal, county, school and other documents were due to the state department of revenue in September in order to set the city’s tax rate, however the last Franklin document – the school district’s – was just submitted last week.
The city is worried about cash flow issues and taxpayers not being able to deduct those property tax payments on federal income tax returns due to the late due date.
Anyone with additional questions can call the tax collector’s office at 934-3109.
