Salt Lake County Treasurer Arthur L. Monson has announced he will waive penalties on delinquent property taxes for National Guard and reserve members activated for Operation Desert Shield, if they contact his office.

In addition to waiving penalties, Monson said he will reduce the interest charged on unpaid taxes from 12.5 percent to 6 percent, the rate military personnel pay for financing obligations under the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act. For information, call 468-3404.
