Okaloosa County Tax Collector Ben Anderson reminds property owners who signed up to participate in the Property Tax Installment payment plan they have until June 30 to pay their first installment.

The Installment Plan divides the annual taxes into four payments — due June, September, December and March. The Installment Plan provides for 3.3 percent discount and adds the convenience of spreading out payments instead of one lump sum payment.

For property owners to utilize the Installment Payment Plan, the first payment must be made by June 30. Payment of the first installment will be extended through July 31, however, accounts paid in July may be subject to additional terms.

After the first payment is made, the remaining payments are due Sept. 30, Dec. 31 and March 31.

To participate in next year’s Installment Payment Plan, an application can be found by clicking the “Real Estate Taxes” link on the left side of www.OkaloosaTax.com or call 850-651-7300.
