When are my taxes due?
Under state law taxes are due upon receipt of the tax bill but no later than December 31.

For payments made by mail to be on time, the postmark date must be December 31 or earlier. To ensure your mailed payment is timely, contact the Post Office to determine the office hours for mail cancellation. Payments placed in Post Office Mail drop boxes do not always receive the same day postmark. The collector’s office highly recommends mailing several days before the December 31 deadline.

Payments made in person are accepted during regular business hours (8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday) at the Collector’s Office. Payments placed in the Collector’s drop box before midnight December 31, are timely. The Collector’s drop box is located at 311 E High Street entrance of the Cole County Courthouse Annex Building. Please call 573-634-9124 for more information.
