Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is pleased to announce her office is again offering the Tax Installment Plan for homeowners. The program provides relief through monthly installment payments for residential homeowners who are facing financial difficulties because of our ongoing economic conditions.
This continues to be the first program of its kind in Ohio.
Scalise said property owners who pay their real estate taxes directly to the Fiscal Office, but cannot pay the full first half amount due, can avoid late payment penalties by enrolling in the TIP. To be eligible all taxes and assessments must be current and you must sign up by the tax bill due date.
Taxpayers who apply by the deadline date of the first half collection will not receive a second half tax bill because they will pay monthly for the entire year. To avoid the statutory 10% penalty for late payment, full payment must be received by the tax bill due date. There is a 5% enrollment charge, which is calculated on the current amount of taxes due.
Homeowners who participate in our Delinquent Tax Program are not eligible; the program is not available to commercial owners or those homeowners who escrow their taxes with a mortgage lender.
