Property Tax Payment Deadline Extended

Posted July 20, 2020, 10:29 AM HST

Kaua‘i County has extended the deadline to pay property taxes to November in an effort to ease the financial burdens residents are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Director of Finance has authorized the waiver of penalty and interest to property taxes for a maximum of 90 days. In order to grant the maximum deferral, the normal Aug. 20, deadline is now Nov. 18.

County officials advise residents to make payments in installments leading up to the new due date. To promote early payment, fees for online credit card and e-check payments are being temporarily waived by the County until Sept. 30. Click here to make an online payment.

Payments can also be made by mail, in person, or at the drop-box located outside of the Kapulē Building at the Līhu‘e Civic Center. Make checks payable to the Director of Finance.

No appointments are necessary to visit Real Property Collections, but access to the Kapulē lobby will be limited to no more than 10 people at any time in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Therefore, to avoid long wait times, remote payment options as described above are preferred.

Failure to pay real property taxes in full by Nov. 18, will result in a 10% penalty, as well as 12% interest per year.
