42-18051. Notice of tax; payment by electronic funds transfer
A. Immediately on receiving the tax roll from the county board of supervisors, the county treasurer shall publish an official notice stating:
1. That the assessment and tax roll is now in the treasurer's possession for collecting the taxes levied.
2. That the taxes on real property and personal property are due and payable and become delinquent at the dates and times prescribed by section 42-18052, and interest will be added to the tax from the time of the delinquency as prescribed by section 42-18053, unless either:
(a) The first half of the taxes are paid before they are delinquent.
(b) The full year tax is paid on or before December 31, as provided by section 42-18053.
3. That all taxes may be paid at the time the first installment is due and payable.
4. When and where tax payments may be made.
B. The county treasurer shall publish the notice once a week for four consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the county.
C. No other demand for taxes is necessary.
D. Each person who is subject to taxation shall pay the taxes at the county treasurer's office, or at any other location designated by the treasurer, before they become delinquent.
E. The county treasurer may require electronic transmission of supporting documentation and payment that includes the name of the taxpayer, tax parcel number and amount of tax, on or before the dates prescribed by section 42-18052, by any person or entity, acting on behalf of multiple owners of property who submit tax payments to the county treasurer in a lump sum exceeding fifty thousand dollars or owners who submit fifty or more tax payments. If the sum of funds submitted fails to balance with the tax parcel information and supporting documentation submitted electronically, and there have been no changes to the tax bills as a result of assessor resolutions or tax court judgments, the funds shall not be accepted and the treasurer shall return the funds and request that the correct amount be submitted. If any payment is received after a delinquent date as prescribed in section 42-18052, interest accrues as prescribed by section 42-18053.
