Pay property taxes by Feb. 1 to avoid penalty; homestead due April 1

Property taxes for county and city landowners will need to be paid by Feb. 1 to avoid having a penalty assessed, says tax collector-assessor Carla Johnson.
Tax notices were mailed earlier and taxpayers should have received their notices by now notifying you that your taxes may be paid at the tax assessor collector’s office at the Walthall County Courthouse, or your payment may be mailed, if you desire.
In addition, tax payments can be made by telephone if you pay by credit or debit card.
Both county and city taxes are paid at the courthouse, a convenience for town taxpayers who used to pay municipal taxes at city hall.
The tax collector assessor’s office is open Monday through Friday from 8-5.
The deadline to file homestead exemption is April 1. Many taxpayers will find it convenient to update their homestead, if needed, while taking care of their property taxes.. If you had no change in homestead, there is no need to resign your exemption.
Residents are also reminded to sign for homestead exemption if they have had a change in their homestead status last year. You’ll need to file or re-file homestead exemption if:
•You were married or divorced in 2023, or if your spouse died last year;
•You purchased or built a new home;
•If you became 65-years old;
•If you became totally disabled or were declared a 100% disabled veteran;
•You purchased or sold land;
•You changed your deed.
To qualify for homestead status in the county you must be resident; comply with income tax laws and purchase vehicle tags in Walthall County. Should you have questions, call the tax collector assessor’s office at 701-876-4932, Et. 8.
