Wayne County taxpayers have until 5 p.m. today to pay their 2017 property taxes without penalty.

A 2-percent penalty will be added to bills not paid by the deadline.

An additional three-quarters of a percent will be added at the first of each following month to any outstanding balance until the bill is paid in full.

Taxes can be paid in person at the Wayne County Tax Office located on the first floor of the Wayne County Courthouse Annex.

However, all county offices were closed Thursday and will not open until 10 a.m. today.

Taxes can still be left in a drop box located on the Ormond Avenue side of the courthouse.

They can be paid online or by phone, but both those options carry a fee collected by the company that provides the service. The county does not receive any revenue from the fee.

Payments may be mailed in as well by sending in the bottom portion of the bill with a check.

Bills that are mailed must be postmarked no later than Jan. 5 by the postal service.

Office postal marks are not valid to show that the mailing met the deadline.
