Delinquency dates for real estate taxes--Interest.
On the first day of May of the year
after which taxes have been assessed, one-half of all unpaid real estate taxes are delinquent.
However, all real estate taxes totaling fifty dollars or less shall be paid in full on or before April
thirtieth. On the first day of each month thereafter there shall be added as interest on the delinquent
taxes at the Category G rate of interest as established in § 54-3-16. If the other half is not paid on or
before the thirty-first day of October of the same year, that also becomes delinquent on November
first and the same interest shall attach in the same manner. If the last day of April or October falls
on a Saturday or Sunday, the tax is due and payable on the last working day of that month. The tax
payment shall either be received in the office on the last working day or the tax payment shall be
postmarked by the last day prior to the taxes becoming delinquent.
