Jackson County Property Tax Bills Will Start Going Out December 1


From:  News Release  11/21/17   GCN

Property tax billing statements for all Jackson County property owners will arrive in mailboxes soon according to Tax Collector Joe Tucker. An estimated 60,000 statements will start being mailed on Friday December 1st.

Property owners who pay their taxes through a home’s mortgage or other types of loans should not receive a statement.  Please check with your mortgage company if you do receive a statement.


Jackson County property taxes are billed through the calendar year. These statements reflect taxes due from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017. Taxes are not due now; property owners have until Feb. 1, 2018 to pay their 2017 property taxes without penalties or fines. Tucker reminds residents that property taxes paid before Dec. 31, 2017, may be deducted from their 2017 Income Taxes.


Moss Point property taxes for 2017 will be collected by the Jackson County Tax Collector’s office for the first time as well.
