  • Camden County residents can expect to receive their tax bills sometime after the Nov. 5 election.
    The county’s re-assessed evaluation comes to $1 billion 564,788, 209 this year which is similar to last year according to County Assessor Eddie Whitworth.
    All personal property and real estate taxes are due by Dec. 31.
    Taxpayers can pay in person, mail their checks or take advantage of the availability of a 24-hour drop box that has been installed at the courthouse.
    Credit card payments can be made online, but Collector Vicky Burns reminds taxpayers there is a charge added by the company processing the payments.
    Another option is to sign up for a prepay plan that is broken into quarterly payments.
    Taxpayers interested in that option can contact the collector's office to find out if they are eligible.
    Burns said the pre-pay plan has turned out to be very popular. It is especially helpful for people on a fixed income who would prefer not to make a large one-time payment at the end of the year.
    The courthouse is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
