Property taxes due on June 20
The second half of the 2011 property tax is due by Wednesday, June 20, 2012, according to Bingham County Tax Collector Janice Lawes.
If you are coming into the office to pay, bring your tax bills with you.
If you are mailing your payment, include the appropriate payment stub to facilitate proper credit. Early payment is encouraged, to avoid long lines or unexpected circumstances that might prevent you from making payment on the due date.
Office hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Payments may be mailed to 501 N Maple #210, Blackfoot ID 83221.
There is also a white drop box near the east parking lot entrance. Be aware that if you wait until late in the day to mail your payment, it might not be postmarked until the next day. We suggest that you mail your payment early. Only payments that are in the office or postmarked by June 20 will be considered on time.
Under Idaho Code, all late payments are charged a 2 percent late fee; interest is charged at the rate of 1 percent per month backdated to Jan. 1.
Credit card payments may be made through Official Payments Corporation, either on their website HYPERLINK "http://www.officialpayments.com" www.officialpayments.com or by phone at 1-800-272-9829. You will need to use jurisdiction code 2224 for Bingham County tax payments. Official Payments charges a 2.75% convenience fee for their service.
