Ashtabula County changes due dates for real estate taxes

Ashtabula County Treasurer Dawn M. Cragon announces that she has restructured the real estate tax due dates to give taxpayers more time between payments. First half taxes are now due the third Wednesday of February, and second half real estate taxes are due the third Wednesday in July.

Second half 2012 Real Estate tax bills will be mailed in early June and are due July 17. Payment may be made to the Treasurer’s Office by mail to 25 West Jefferson Street, Jefferson, Ohio 44047 or in person Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to noon. Office hours will be extended to 4:30 p.m. beginning July 1 for the duration of the tax collection.

You can now view and print your tax bill online by using the Tax Search function at  Electronic payments (credit card, debit card and eCheck) may be made by visiting Payment Options at the Treasurer’s website. Payments may be dropped off at the Jefferson Village drop box located on East Jefferson Street. Additionally, some local banks accept payment for their customers as long as the original tax bill is tendered with the payment — call your local bank to see if they participate.

Payments postmarked by the due date are considered timely, and Cragon encourages taxpayers to mail their payments by July 17 to avoid long lines. Receipts will be returned if you include your entire tax bill and a self addressed stamped envelope.

A monthly prepayment plan is offered to help ease the burden of large, semi-annual payments. Contact Sally at (440) 576-1421 to discuss the tax escrow (aka prepayment) program for next year’s taxes. The next escrow period begins in August.

Manufactured home tax bills will be mailed out by the end of June and are due July 31.
