Taxes mailed

County residents should be receiving their 2017 Tax Statements in the mail.

Okmulgee County Treasurer Vonna Lampkins and her staff mailed out the tax statements last week.

Normally, the first half of taxes would be due on Dec. 31. However, the County Treasurer has extended the deadline for the first half to Jan. 12, 2018. The remainder or second half will be due on March 31, 2018. 

The Okmulgee County Treasurer's office will be open until 4:30 p.m. on those days or until the last taxpayer has left. 

“No statements will be mailed out on the second half,” Lampkins said. “It is your responsibility to mail the second half on time. If you don't receive your tax statement soon, please call the office and we can give you the amount over the phone.”

Citizens can make credit card payments either personally in the office or online at the treasurer's website. The credit card company charges a three per cent charge for each transaction.  The treasurer's official website is home.php?cnty=Okmulgee. 

“You may also just google Okmulgee County Treasurer and it will direct you to our site,” she said.  “This site allows taxpayers to view tax information online, calculate mortgage tax and to pay taxes by credit card.”

Those wishing a receipt mailed should enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. This also includes anyone who has a mobile home and needs a decal.

If there are back taxes due, it will be stated on the Tax Roll Identification Number (TID) in the upper right hand corner with the letters “BT” printed in bold letters. At the bottom of the statement, it will also have the years that are delinquent printed in a block and highlighted.

Anyone wishing to make changes to their tax information can do so at the Okmulgee County Assessor’s Office.

On Nov. 1, the County Assessor certified to the County Treasurer $16,906,077 to be collected for the 2017 Tax Year .
