Due Dates & Penalties

In order for your property tax payment to be considered on time, your payment must meet 1 of these 3 conditions:

  • Property tax must be paid in the Clay County Treasurer's Office by the due date.
  • The envelope must be postmarked by the due date.
  • The online payment must be made by 12 p.m. (midnight) on the due date to be considered paid on time.

Penalty for Late Payments

If you pay your first half or second half property tax after the due dates, a penalty will be added to your tax. The later you pay, the greater the penalty you must pay. The table below shows the penalty amounts added to your tax if your property taxes are not paid before the date shown. There is a difference in late penalties depending on whether or not your property is considered a homestead or a non-homestead. If you would like information about how homestead classifications are determined, go to the Clay County Assessor page.
