Real Estate Taxes

How Real Estate (Property) Taxes Are Calculated

Taxes owed on Real or Personal Property are determined annually by:

  • Tax Assessor - Valuation of the property
  • Board of Supervisors - Millage Rates
  • Mississippi Department of Revenue - Approval of the roll

Important Dates

Once the roll is approved, the Tax Collector sends out notices, and owners have the following dates to keep in mind:

  • February 1st - Deadline for paying property taxes without accruing interest
  • February 2nd - Interest will begin to accrue at 0.5% (1/2%) per month
  • August 1st - Publication fee ($3) will be added to taxes owed (for advertising the lien in the paper)
  • Last Monday of August - The Property lien will be auctioned at the Annual Sale of Delinquent Taxes.
