April 7, 2020 To: Washington County Taxpayers
Per the Governor's Executive Order, Washington County Treasurer's office will be waiving delinquent interest on first half property tax payments that were due end of February. You may still make that first half payment and will not be charged any late interest if payment is received in our office by April 30th, 2020. This will give you the option of making 2 half payments with second half being due on June 15th, instead of the full payment that is due on April 30, 2020. You can still make your full payment and are encouraged to do so.
