2010 Tax Deadline Quickly Approaching

Residents in Wichita County who need to pay their 2010 taxes are urged to do so before the July 1 deadline.

Officials say all delinquent taxes in Texas not paid by the July 1st deadline must be turned over to an attorney for collection, which will automatically add an additional 20% to the amount due.

Anyone with tax-related questions are asked to contact the Wichita County Tax Office and Tax Assessor Lou Murdock.

Murdock says the tax office is eager to work with tax payers to help sort their issues. You're asked to contact the office before making arrangements with outside sources.

The number to the Property Tax Office is 766-8200.
