What is considered a delinquent real estate tax bill?

A tax bill is considered “delinquent” when the due date has passed and by statute any appeal rights have expired. Henderson County real estate property tax notices are mailed out in late October or early November by the Sheriff’s Office and are payable to the Sheriff’s Office beginning November 1. They become delinquent on January 1, following their due date. The bills are maintained and collected in the Sheriff’s Office until the Sheriff turns over the uncollected tax bills to the County Clerk’s Office. The delinquent tax bills are then maintained at the Henderson County Clerk’s Office, where they accrue interest of 1% per month plus penalties until paid.
