You’re getting three days extra to pay property taxes if you live in Richland County.
County officials decided today to extend the deadline for payment without penalty from Saturday to Tuesday.
The change matches what adjoining Lexington County is doing.
You can pay in person in each county by 5 p.m. in Lexington and 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the respective county administration buildings.
Never miss a local story.
Bills postmarked Tuesday or paid online that day will be considered on-time, officials said.
The extension in both comes because the deadline falls on the King Day holiday weekend.
Payment after Tuesday means a bigger bill since overdue penalties apply.
