Those who are late on their 2012 property taxes have until the end of the day Wednesday to pay or face stiff penalties.

Floyd County Tax Commissioner Kevin Payne announced in a press release that since the due date of November 15, 2012, his office has collected approximately 94% of the $81 million billed for city, county and school property taxes. Those who fail to pay their overdue amount will face a mandatory 10% late penalty and a lien will be placed on the home and homeowner.

Payne says the tax office will accept payment at the historic Floyd County courthouse on 5th Avenue or bills can be paid online at Payments postmarked by Wednesday will also be accepted.
