The Salt Lake County treasurer's office has mailed 243,000 tax notices to local property owners, who will have until Nov. 30 to pay their property taxes.

Any tax payment received after that deadline but bearing a Nov. 30 postmark will be accepted as paid on time, says County Treasurer Art Monson.Like last year, the treasurer's office will extend its hours of business each working day from now through the deadline date, Monson said.

For owners wishing to pay their taxes in person, the treasurer's office will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Nov. 30, except for Thanksgiving Day.

The office will also be open on two Saturdays - Nov. 19 and Nov. 26. The treasurer's office is located in Room N1200 on the first floor of the north building at the Salt Lake County Government Center, 2001 S. State.

Monson said property owners who receive a tax notice marked "Duplicate," should regard the notice as informational only. Those owners have been making monthly tax payments into escrow with their mortgage company, and the mortgage company will pay the property taxes due, he said.

However, it never hurts for property owners to phone their mortgage companies to check that the companies have received the original tax notices and plan to pay their taxes on time.

For assistance or additional information on the Salt Lake County property tax notice, phone the treasurer's office at 468-3404 during business hours.
