Victoria County residents planning to pay their property taxes this year to get a break on incomes taxes will have an extra day to get that bill paid.
Rena Scherer, the county tax-assessor collector, said her office will be closed Dec. 31 for the New Year's Day holiday. That means property taxes paid by the end of the day Jan. 3 will be posted as being paid in 2010.
Property taxes must be paid before Feb. 1 to avoid penalty and interest.
