Jackson County Commissioners received a report from the County Treasurer’s Office on tax collections during their regular meeting, Monday, Dec. 2, stating that Jackson County has collected $1,136,331.58 for November on ad velorum and personal taxes.
“That’s a pretty good collection for November since they’ve only been mailed out within the last couple of weeks, and with the holidays and all,” County Treasurer Renee Howard said.
That is a $291,000 increase over last November at $844.855. Previous year’s collections for November were $502,980.35 in 2009, $1,191,536.75 collected in 2010, it’s recent highest for November at $1,796,023.29 collected in 2011.
Tax statements were mailed out in early November, with the first half due by Dec. 31, and second half by March 31, 2014. If no payment is received by Jan. 1, 2014, then interest can begin to accrue. The Treasurer’s Office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will be open on the morning of Monday, Dec. 23, and all day on New Year’s Eve.
Also during the meeting, Commissioners approved last meeting’s minutes, reports for the Assessor’s Office, Sheriff’s Department, and Jackson County Health Department, and approved a purchase order for the Assessor’s office.
Commissioners also approved Supplemental Appropriations for the month of November to include a Sheriff’s Service Fee and for the County Assessor’s Office.
There was no new business. After approval of claims the meeting adjourned.
