Property Taxes are due and payable on or before Friday, June 28, 2019.  This is to advise the ratepayers of Big Lakes County that the Property Assessment and Tax Notices were mailed out May 9, 2019.

A 7.5% penalty will be applied to current taxes and arrears if payment is received after June 28, 2019 and an additional 14.5% for payments made after January 31, 2020.
