Delinquent property tax bills go out in Sedgwick County

Forgot to pay your property taxes? Be on the lookout for a reminder from Sedgwick County.

The treasurer’s office this week is mailing out about 23,000 delinquent 2010 real property tax bills and about 600 delinquent second-half personal property tax bills.

Treasurer Linda Kizzire has been trying to get a bit more assertive about past due taxes, adding a big red “DELINQUENT” stamp on notices.

In addition to paying in person at the treasurer’s office, property owners may pay their taxes online by visiting the treasurer’s website at www.sedgwickcounty.org. Residents should select the “tax payment system” option and use a MasterCard, VISA or Discover card to pay online.

A reminder service also is available at www.sedgwickcounty.org. Property owners can sign up to receive an e-mail reminder of real estate and personal property taxes due each year. An e-mail address is needed to register for the service.
