Harris County Tax Assessor/Collector Don Sumners says unpaid business personal property taxes will be turned over for collection on April 2nd with a 15-to-20 percent penalty added to the unpaid balance.
"What I mean by business personal property taxes are the taxes levied on computers, equipment, inventory, other assets of the business except for the real property which are the building and its improvements."
Each notice will have information about methods of payment, and a reminder that the collection penalty can be avoided with an installment payment made by April 1st. Sumners says Harris Country will be sending a lot of delinquent notices.
"About 45-thousand notices have been sent out. This is pretty much in line with prior years."
Anyone with questions about their account or their eligibility to make installment payments should contact the Harris County Tax Office.
