Chancery clerk urges property owners to pay property taxes before Aug. 27 deadline

Warren County Chancery Clerk Donna Hardy

Warren County Chancery Clerk Donna Hardy encourages all residents who think they may owe property taxes to pay before the approaching Aug. 27 deadline.

Warren County currently has 565 parcels with outstanding tax bills. It is important to note that Mississippi has not issued any provisions or extensions regarding property tax, and unpaid taxes could result in the seizure of the property.

Hardy emphasized that to meet the deadline, taxpayers have just 14 business days to bring their accounts current. In addition to the short time remaining, she is concerned that the social distancing requirements to keep the public safe will also create challenges in serving so many customers if everyone waits until the last minute to pay. COVID-19 has also affected the postal service, making it impossible to know who has actually received notice of their balance owed.

Challenging as it may be, Hardy encourages everyone who thinks they may have a balance to call 601-636-4415, visit the county website, or come by the Chancery Clerk‘s office as soon as possible.

“Please let us help you,” she said. “We will do everything we can.”
