If there is an unpaid balance on a prior tax year the payment options listed on the front of the statement will include that amount as well as the current tax payment due. The total amount listed in the payment options must be paid in order to take advantage of any applicable discounts. If you want to pay only the delinquent portion of your bill, contact our office for the correct amount to pay.
