McDuffie County's Tax Commissioner has been hitting the streets to collect delinquent taxes.
McDuffie County Tax Commissioner Sandra Whitaker has spent the last few weeks posting delinquent tax properties.
Sandra Whitaker and two staff members have recently posted several properties that will be sold because of delinquent taxes.
"I was elected by the citizens of McDuffie County to collect property tax," said Mrs. Whitaker in a press release last week. "It is not fair for the people who pay their tax in a timely manner to one day have to pay taxes at a higher millage rate."
Mrs. Whitaker said delinquent taxpayers receive several notices reminding them of the unpaid taxes, plus her office is willing to accept partial payments to help taxpayers.
"As I tell everyone, if you will work with me, I will work with you," she said. "However, if I never hear from you, I can only assume you don't care if your property is sold for taxes."
