1st half real estate tax bills due Feb. 6

TOLEDO, Jan. 1, 2019: Lucas County Treasurer Lindsay Webb said that her office has begun to mail the real estate tax bills for the first half of 2018, which are due by Wednesday February 6, 2019.  There are roughly 207,000 parcels in Lucas County, and Webb said that her office mails roughly 150,000 tax bills, with the remaining parcels billed electronically.  She said that all bills should be in the mail by the end of next week.

As Ms. Webb announced earlier this year, the semiannual real estate tax due dates are every FIRST WEDNESDAY IN FEBRUARY (first half) and every LAST WEDNESDAY IN JULY (second half).  She further noted that 1st half payments sent via mail must be postmarked by Wednesday February 6, 2019 to avoid penalty and interest.  Due to recent changes in postal sorting procedures, Webb recommended that taxpayers sending payments close to the deadline inquire at their local post office regarding postmark procedures and timelines.

Ms. Webb said she expects to collect approximately $300 million, which will go to fund local schools, senior citizen services, libraries, Metroparks, the 911 system, the zoo, and other agencies supported by property tax levies.

Taxes can be paid in person at the Lucas County Treasurer’s office, located on the 5th Floor of One Government Center, which is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  The Treasurer’s Office also offers taxpayers a convenient outdoor Drop-Box located in front of the Safety Building (at the corner of Erie and Jackson Streets, across from the Government Center); the Treasurer’s DropBox will accept real estate payments 24 hours a day (checks/money orders only). Credit card and E-Check payments may also be made by phone through Forte (1-877-690-3729) or through the Treasurer’s website at (www.co.lucas.oh.us/treasurer).  

Per section 323.122 of the O.R.C. members of the National Guard or reserve components of the U.S. Armed Forces that are called to active duty may be granted an extension on their property taxes. 

Questions can be directed toward the office's Real Estate Department, at 419-213-4305.
