It's that time of year. No, not Halloween, though it could be just as scary!

The Ravalli County Property Tax Statements have been mailed and are arriving in mailboxes this week.

The thousands of statements, as in previous years, each come with two payment stubs. The first half of the taxes is due by November 30th and the second half is due by May 31 of 2013.

The Treasurer's Office also accepts payment by VISA or Mastercard. The information can be filled out on the back of the payment stub and faxed to (406) 375-6598. There is a 2.5 percent convenience fee to pay by credit card.

You can mail your payment or drop it by the Treasurer's Office in the Ravalli County Administration Building on South 4th Street in Hamilton, in the same area as Vehicle Licensing.
