What if I pay my taxes late? Where can I appeal a late payment penalty?

Late payment penalties must first be appealed to the local county treasurer’s office. Late paid tangible personal property taxes are subject to a 5 percent or 10 percent penalty, as well as interest charges. The interest accrues monthly, is based on the current market rate and cannot be appealed.
