Yes, the failure to mail a tax bill or the failure of a property owner to receive a bill does not affect the validity of the taxes or interest prescribed by law. It is the responsibility of the property owner to know when taxes are due and payable. In addition, neither the Tax Receiver nor any other official has legal authority to waive statutory interest charges. Interest charges are fixed by the Real Property Tax Law. Payments made between January 1 and January 31 are not subject to an interest penalty. Payments made between February 1 and February 29 are subject to a 1% penalty. Payments made between March 1 and March 31 are subject to a 2% penalty, plus a $1 re-mailing fee.
