NEWKIRK — Kay County Treasurer Christy Kennedy is informing the public to be aware of changes in the second half payment due date for ad valorem taxes.
Per guidelines put in place by Gov. Kevin Stitt and State Auditor Cindy Byrd, the second half payment due date will be April 30.
“To be clear, this only applies to taxpayers that have made their first half payment, this will not apply to those that are delinquent,” Kennedy said. “If you made your first half payment by the due date, you will have additional time to pay your second half payment without penalty.”
Kennedy also wants the public to be aware of guidance the Treasurer’s office can provide during the closing of the Kay County Courthouse to the public concerning tax payments. The courthouse has been closed to the public due to the State of Emergency declaration by the Kay County Commissioners due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We will be here to offer any help we can to folks who would normally come into the office to make their tax payment.” Kennedy said.” Our first thought is to alleviate any additional anxiety this may cause taxpayers.”
Tax payments can be mailed to the Treasurer’s office, at 201 S. Main, Newkirk, or use the www.kaycounty.org Web site provided for on-line payments.
“I understand that there will be taxpayers that are not comfortable with these options. If you feel you need to contact our office by phone or e-mail to guide you through other options, we will make sure to provide you with the service you need,” Kennedy said.
