Tax Notice — On July 15, 2012, the Fayette County Tax Office sent tax bills out to all known taxpayers. However, some tax bills have been returned due to a bad address or name. But, as property owners, you are still liable for the tax. Not receiving a tax bill, does not alleviate the tax burden. Failure to pay can result in late charges or loss of property. The Tax Office would like to remind the taxpayers all property taxes not paid by April 1 will be advertised as delinquent. Therefore, an additional $20 fee will be added to each delinquent tax bill. To avoid this charge, payments must be received or postmarked on or before March 31. The Fayette County Tax Office will be glad to assist you with any questions you may have concerning your taxes. In order to handle all calls more efficiently, please have tax document, account number or ticket number available when you call. Also, for your convenience, please visit the website at www.wvpropertytaxes.com.
