Problems with Collin County Tax Payments
According to a story published by the Dallas Morning News on October 28, 2010, the Collin County tax office had a snafu with the mailing of their 2010 property tax bills.
It seems the Houston printer who has the contract with Collin County supplied return envelopes for tax payments addressed to Doña Ana County treasurer in southeastern New Mexico. Based on the report, approximately 2,500 residents received these incorrect return envelopes. Some unknowing tax payers did not catch the error and mailed payments using the incorrect envelopes.
Collin County Tax Assessor Steps in to Help
Kenneth Maun, Collin County tax assessor, indicated his staff has requested new return envelopes and they are on the way. The treasurer in New Mexico is collecting the checks and plans to return all property tax payments back to Collin County. If you’ve already mailed payment, it appears no action is necessary on your part and all payments will be routed to the correct tax assessor.
Before paying your Collin County property taxes, make sure you are mailing to a Texas address. For those that have not yet paid their property tax bill, keep note that payments mailed after January 31st, 2011 are considered late and subject to a 7% penalty. If you anticipate difficulty in meeting this deadline, there are several options available including the financing of these taxes through a property tax loan.
