February is the last month for property tax early payment discounts, Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon said in a newsletter. Pay by February 28 and save 1 percent.
Property taxes are due by March 31. Taxpayers can use the office’s ePay system; instructions are on the website.
Taxpayers also can sign up for the Tax Collector’s advance installment plan for their 2018 property tax payment; make four payments throughout the year and get a discount of just under 4 percent. Sign up on the website by April 30.
The Tax Collector also offers a tax planner and services guide. It includes a calendar, information about services, frequently asked questions, and a glossary of tax terms.

In a post on its website, the office warns that because it was closed Thursday and Friday for Hurricane Matthew and Monday for Columbus Day, when its doors open at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, customers can expect longer wait times then and throughout the rest of the week.
