Real estate tax statements for the first half 2012, payable by Feb. 15 (to avoid a 10 percent penalty) have been mailed according to Wood County Treasurer Jill Engle.
A total of $164,992,265.58 has been billed against 72,358 parcels. By law, the post office cancellation date is considered. Taxpayers should be aware that all internet payments, mailed by their financial institutions need to be postmarked on or before the due date.
Engle will furnish duplicate "information only" copies of statements to property owners who pay their real estate taxes with their house payment.
Members of the National Guard and reserve components of the armed forces of the United States who have been called to active duty may qualify for an extension of time in which to pay.
As a customer service, most of the financial institutions in the county will accept payments of the real estate taxes and forward them.
Individuals need to present their bill and pay the exact amount. The institutions will not accept partial payments, escrow payments or disputed amounts. These concerns can be resolved by contacting the treasurer's office either in person or by toll free phone.
The phone numbers are Bowling Green 419 354-9130, all other areas 1-866-860-4140 extension 9130.
Participating financial institutions are Union Bank, the Corn City State Bank, Croghan Bank, the State Bank and Trust, Fifth Third Bank of Northwest Ohio, First Federal of the Midwest and Huntington National Bank.
Tax payments may be made by automatic withdrawal from a checking account.
Residents may also remit payment by credit card, with a convenience fee attached.
A drop box for tax payments is located in the southwest corner of the parking lot off of Summit Street. It is directly behind the ups box.
