Yes. Penalty waivers can be granted for legitimate and reasonable causes and circumstances beyond the taxpayer’s control, including those related to impacts resulting from COVID-19. However, a penalty cancellation is not something that taxpayers can request in advance. Beginning on April 11, the day after property taxes become delinquent, taxpayers unable to pay on time for reasons related to COVID-19 may download a penalty cancellation waiver form from our website.
We encourage all property owners who can pay their taxes on time to do so. This revenue helps local government to continue providing vital services such as public health and emergency response that the public relies on, especially in times like these.
