With time winding down to pay 2015 property taxes, Texas County Collector-Treasurer Tammy Cantrell offered hours for her office.
They are: Closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Dec. 24-25. (An opening day of Dec. 26 is in error in this week’s newspaper)
The office will reopen Monday, Dec. 28. Hours are 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Taxes are due in her office by Thursday, Dec. 31, to avoid a penalty for late payment. Extended hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the last day. Tax payments made through the mail must be postmarked by Dec. 31 — or they will be returned and not opened, per state law.
This year, the office also is collecting taxes for the City of Houston.
