Property owners in Muscogee County will be greeted will tax notices Friday. Deputy Tax Commissioner Tony Floyd said notices are going out today to 44,384 property owners and all should be delivered by Saturday.

Forty percent of the bill is due by Oct. 1 and the balance or 60 percent is due by Dec. 1. The full amount may be paid by Oct. 1.

If the 40 percent is not paid by Oct. 1, a penalty is tacked onto the total tax due.

Anyone with questions should call the tax commissioner's office at 706-653-4208.
