The 2021 ad valorem property tax statements are delayed this year about three weeks, and tax deadlines have been extended into January, said Canadian County Treasurer Carolyn Leck.
“Due to the implementation of a new chart of accounts released by the
State Auditor for state budgets, the 2021 ad valorem statements will
be at least three weeks later than the normal weekend of Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, this is affecting several counties statewide,” Leck said Thursday afternoon.
“While I cannot give a specific date for mailing statements, we will be extending first half or full amount payments without penalty through January 28, 2022,” Leck said.
Leck said people should not obtain an estimated tax amount from the assessor
office or their website for remittance. Any such payments made will be returned, Leck said.
Leck said people can check the Canadian County Treasurer’s website after the middle of December for the updated 2021 tax amounts, and they can send payment as soon as they see the new taxes posted.
“We are doing our best to minimize inconvenience to our constituents,” Leck said.
