Taxpayers may pay online by going to www.mctotx.org and select Property Tax or access their individual account by scanning the QR code on the statement with a smart device. Tax statements can also be downloaded from the website. Tax statements for properties paid through mortgage escrow accounts were sent to the requesting mortgage company. A printable version of the receipt is available online and paper receipts will be issued upon request.
Taxpayers are urged to contact the Tax Office if they have not received their tax statement by mid November. “It is important that a property owner contact us if they do not receive their statement,” said McRae. All payments, including metered mail, online bill pay and e-checks, must bear a USPS postmark or be received on or before January 31st. Depositing payments in a USPS collection box does not guarantee a postmark for that day and could result in the accrual of penalty and interest if done on or near a delinquency date. Property taxes must be paid by January 31, 2020 to avoid incurring penalties and interest.
Section 31.031 of the Property Tax Code allows individuals who are disabled/disabled veteran/surviving spouse of a disabled veteran or at least 65 years of age and qualify for a homestead exemption to choose an installment payment option on the property in which the homestead is claimed. Late payments will be charged penalty and interest per the Property Tax Code.
