Real estate tax statements for the second half of 2012, payable by July 12, have been mailed, according to Wood County Treasurer Jill Engle.
A total of $80,003,408.23 has been billed against 72,405 parcels in Wood County. Taxes must be paid by July 12 to avoid a 10 percent penalty. The post office cancellation date is considered by law. All internet payments mailed by financial institutions must be postmarked on or before the due date.
Engle will again 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.
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. Partial payments, escrow payments, or disputed amounts will not be accepted. These concerns can be resolved by contacting the treasurer's office either in person or by toll free phone. In Bowling Green, the number is (419) 354-9130. For all other areas, the number is 1-866-860-4140, ext. 9130.
Participating financial institutions are Union Bank, Corn City State Bank, Croghan Bank, State Bank and Trust, Fifth Third Bank of Northwest Ohio, First Federal Bank of the Midwest, and Huntington National Bank.
Tax payments may be made by automatic withdrawal from a checking account. Payment may also be remitted by credit card, with a convenience fee attached.
A drop box for tax payments is located in the southwest corner of the courthouse parking lot off of Summit Street, directly behind the UPS box.
