Montgomery County Accepts Prepayment of 2018 Real Property Taxes

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Effective today, Montgomery County will accept the prepayment of 2018 County real property taxes.

It will be up to the Internal Revenue Service to determine whether prepayment of 2018 County real property taxes may be deducted for Federal, State, or local income tax purposes. The County advises taxpayers to consult their own tax advisor about deducting a prepayment of the taxpayer’s 2018 County real property taxes on their federal income tax return.

Montgomery County makes no representations about how or whether the prepayment of 2018 County real property taxes affects escrowed taxes. Escrowed taxes are a matter for the taxpayer and the taxpayers escrow agency to resolve.

Residents who want to prepay their 2018 County real property taxes may do so by mail or in person. The County is strongly encouraging residents to pay by mail.

Residents seeking to make prepayments in person may do so between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. -- from December 26 to December 29, 2017, for the purpose of possible deductibility. Only checks and cash will be accepted as payment.
