Ownership of real property is established as of January 1st of the tax year, and transfer of ownership during the year does not relieve the seller of tax liability.

Each September taxes become due for real estate, business personal property and individually held personal property (manufactured homes, boats, boat motors jet skis and unlicensed motor vehicles). Tax bills are mailed to the property owners in late August early September. Taxes on real estate and personal property are due in September and are payable through January 5th without interest. After January 5th an interest charge of 2% is added and an additional 3/4% is added on the first day of each month thereafter until the bill is paid in full.
Real estate tax bills are only mailed to property owners. Haywood County does not mail tax bills to loan institutions or escrow companies because you are the owner of the property, not your loan institution. We will gladly provide your loan institution with your billing information at their request, but we strongly suggest that you send them a copy of your bill.
If you are unable to pay your taxes in full by January 5th of each year, you may have the option of paying a predetermined monthly payment amount until your taxes are paid in full. Please contact the Tax Collections department at 828-452-6643 for your payment plan options.
