Ward County Residents Pay Property Taxes

Posted: Updated:

It's that time of the year again for Ward County residents, as people get their statements in order to pay their 2013 property taxes.

Phone lines and the front desk at the Ward County Treasurers Office are busy as people have made their way in to pay their taxes.  All of the statements were sent out of the office Monday morning, and things have gone much smoother than last year when several hundred statements were lost in the mail, and had to be resent to Ward County residents. This year, the only bump in the road has been a small programming error. 

"This year we had to do a little different programming because of some of the legislative laws and processing the 12 percent discount, programming issues we ran into a couple of them.  When we had everything programmed, we didn't have 2013 information in when we got the software ready," says Devra Smestad, Ward County Auditor.

Property owners who want to take advantage of the 5 percent discount for early filing should have their taxes paid no later than February 15, any payment post-marked after that date will miss out.
