Taxpayers responsible for payment by March 31 

DeFuniak Springs, FL (October 23, 2013) – Walton County tax bills will be mailed Thursday, October 31. The Walton County Tax Collector’s Office urges property owners who haven’t received a bill by the second week in November to please contact the office at (850) 892-8121 or through email at [email protected]

Each year a substantial amount of tax bills are returned to the Walton County Tax Collector’s Office as undeliverable. While a tax bill may not have been deliverable to the taxpayer, the property owner is still responsible for paying taxes by the March 31 deadline to avoid penalty. 

“Undeliverable mail is an issue for every tax office in the State. We are required by law to mail the bill to the address that is on the official tax roll. Property owners often change addresses and forget to notify the Property Appraiser’s Office of their new mailing address,” said Tax Collector Rhonda Skipper. 

Property owners who have not received a bill can visit waltontaxcollector.com and utilize the tax search feature to find out the amount owed or contact the office for another bill. 

A four percent discount is extended to property owners who pay current year taxes by November 30. 

To make official address changes to the tax roll, tax payers can visit the Walton County Property Appraiser’s website at waltonpa.com and submit their address change electronically.
