BROWNSVILLE — If you're one of the those residents that waits until the last minute to pay delinquent property taxes, the penalty for doing so, has now increased from 12.5% up to 15%.
The Brownsville I.S.D. board of trustees approved the resolution on Wednesday night in a four to three vote. The Cameron County Tax Assessor and Collector requested the resolutions last month. Property taxes were due at the end of January and any taxes not paid by June 30th are referred for collection on July 1st.
