Property Tax Statements To Go Out In Central Okla.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Cleveland County treasurer says some 120,000 property tax statements will go into the mail this week in central Oklahoma.

The Norman Transcript reports Thursday that taxes will be due Dec. 31, but can be divided into halves, with the second half due by March 31.

Treasurer Jim Reynolds says 75 percent of payments come from mortgage companies. Usually, only people who have paid off their mortgages or those who purchased property with cash will need to pay the bill personally.

People who are unsure of where they fit into the mix should check with their mortgage companies.

The Transcript says Cleveland County is at a high 99 percent rate of collection for past property tax years.
