Delinquent Tax Information:

Delinquent Tax Summonses are served as soon as possible after delinquent taxes are submitted to the Clerk & Master’s Office for collection. To avoid your payment being returned to you it is important that you contact the Clerk & Master’s office before mailing any payment to insure the payment amount is correct. Payments may also be returned if the payment is not made payable to the Clerk and Master. This office does not accept partial payments for delinquent tax years and if there is more than one delinquent tax year the oldest year must be paid prior to any subsequent years.

The Clerk and Master is not permitted to make any changes to amounts due without a Court Order. If you believe you do not owe delinquent taxes or believe you are entitled to some other relief from the taxes then you must file a response with the Chancery Court. Although not required, it is recommended that you retain or consult with an attorney prior to filing any document in Chancery Court.

Payments Accepted – Cash, Checks (payable to Clerk & Master), Credit Card, Money Order
