Pay now or pay more later. That's the deal when it comes to property taxes.
The Leon County Tax Collector has sent out tax notices to all property owners. Doris Maloy says you can save a pretty penny by paying early. If you pay in November you get a four percent discount, December a three percent break, and so on.
"And then if you haven't paid by the end of February there is no discount. And on April first the taxes are actually delinquent and additional costs are added at that time."
Maloy says owners of mobile homes that are not classified as real property need to purchase a decal by December 31.
