What are your department's Day-to-Day responsibilities to the citizens of Webster County?
The Webster County Collector of Revenue is the elected official responsible for collecting Real Estate and Personal Property taxes and State assessed Utilities. The Collectors Office also collects county merchant license and auctioneers license.
Distribution is made to 33 tax districts, including 8 school districts and 6 cities. Eighty to eighty five percent of all tax collected goes to schools. The total tax aggregate for 2008 tax year is $14.6 million.
Tax statements are normally mailed the first Friday after Veterans Day approximately November the 15th. If you do not receive your bill by Thanksgiving please contact us. Tax payments are due by December 31st of each year. After this date penalties and interest will be applied. State law requires that the collector's office follow post mark. A payment mailed the last day of the year, but has a January post mark by state law has to include all late fees and interest for a January payment. Please, to be sure and get a December post mark, mail no later than December 29th. Mail dropped at the Post Office he last day of the year does not always get a December post mark. Normally the Post Office closes at noon on the last day of the year and only mail that gets worked receives a December post mark. Dropping payment at the post office before noon on December the 31st does not guarantee a December post mark. A drop box is available on the West side of the courthouse; we recommend that you drop your payment there on the last day of the year to be sure it is on time.
Future Goals and Plans for your department:
To continue to upgrade technology to be able to offer fast & courteous customer service to all tax payers.
