The Muskingum County treasurer is reminding residents that the deadline to pay real estate taxes is coming up.
Tax payments are due Friday March 8th . Taxes can be paid in person at the office of the treasurer located in the Court House, at Community Bank if you are a customer or they can be mailed in, but the deadline is very strict and payments must be postmarked by the 8th.
"It’s very important if they do not get it in on time there are penalties and interests that will be charged to them," said county treasurer, Carol Friel.
Friel understands the process can be stressful for some, she says anyone who has questions or concerns about their real estate taxes to contact her office directly.
"A phone call, if they have questions about where to pay, how much to pay. If they have questions on the amounts they were charged, they need to contact the auditors office, we do not do that in the treasurer’s office," said Friel.
The treasurer’s office is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 740-455-7118
