The Douglas County Treasurer’s Office will mail real estate and personal property tax bills Thursday.
The first half of the payments are due Dec. 20. Because that day falls on a Sunday this year, the deadline is extended to Dec. 21, a Monday. Payments must be either made or postmarked by that date.
The second half of the 2009 bills are due May 10, 2010. Taxpayers can make payments online — although it includes a processing fee — at www.douglas-county.com.
Checks or money orders made payable to “Douglas County Treasurer” need to be sent to P.O. Box 668, Lawrence 66044. A return envelope is provided with the bill.
