Payment Dates to Avoid Penalties

Summer taxes are due on July 1 and payable through September 14 without penalty or interest. Beginning September 15 a 1% interest penalty will be added. Add an additional 1% interest for each calendar month thereafter on the unpaid tax balance.

 

Winter taxes are due on December 1 and payable through February 28, of the following year, without penalty or interest before they are turned delinquent to the County Treasurer.

After February 28, all delinquent winter and summer taxes are to be sent to the Iron County Treasurer for collection.

You will have to contact that office for the penalties and late fees (906/875-3362).

Failure to receive a tax bill does not waive penalty or interest. Payment can be made by check or cash. Credit/debit cards/echecks are accepted through this website.
