Pike County Revenue Commissioner Curtis Blair said those who have not paid their property taxes need to come to the Pike County Courthouse as quickly as possible and take care of business.

“Right now, the late penalty is only five dollars,” Blair said. “However, we will soon begin collecting interest on the late fees, probably after Wednesday, January 8.”

Blair said the Pike County Revenue Office is “on scope” with the collection of property taxes.

“We are about where we normally are at this time of the year,” Blair said. “We have some late fees but not that many, probably what is about normal for most revenue offices.”

Blair said those who plan to apply for 2020 Homestead Exemption should come in and make application.

“Those ages 65 and over get some off their taxes through Homestead Exemption,” he said. “Those whose income is under $12,000 are completely exempt as are those with 100 percent disability.”

Blair said those who have questions about their taxes or tax exempt status are encouraged to come in and talk with anyone in the Pike County Revenue Office.
