Victoria County mails tax notices this week

The 2010 property tax bills are in the mail this week to property owners and businesses throughout Victoria County.

Rena Scherer, the county tax-assessor collector, said her office printed 58,243 statements that are being mailed to the property owners and businesses.

She said 8,724 statements will be printed and sent to the mortgage companies.

The taxes are due when the bills are received, but they don't become delinquent until after Jan. 31.

That's when the county begins assessing penalty and interest.
