Property taxes due, some notices missing

The January 31 deadline to pay your Franklin County property tax is fast approaching and some property owners have not received their tax statements. “We have had numerous calls from taxpayers that have not received their tax notices,” Franklin County Tax Assessor Collector Sue Ann Harper said. “I’m assuming we have a postal problem since I nave not received them back as returned mail.” For more information, see the January 5 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
