The deadline to submit payment for the second installment of real property tax bills for the 2011-2012 tax year is Tuesday, February 21, 2012.
Since the actual deadline, set by the Maui County Code, falls on February 20th, which is the President’s Day holiday, this year’s deadline will be on the following business day.
Real Property tax bills from the County of Maui were already mailed to property owners or the agents servicing their accounts.
Direct Payments: Property owners who pay their real property taxes directly, and who have not received a real property tax bill should check on their taxes by contacting the County of Maui Real Property Tax Division by phone at (808) 270-7697, in person at the Maui Mall Service Center (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), or online at www.mauipropertytax.com.
Electronic Payments; Electronic payments are accepted via the internet or phone. The service is offered through a private vendor Link2Gov, and includes a convenience fee. The fee is not collected by the County of Maui.
To make an electronic payment customers will need to reference the 13 digit tax map key number on their tax bill. To find out more about electronic payment options visit http://www.mauicounty.gov/departments/Finance/rptpayment.htm.
Online Payment: To make an online payment go to https://gate.link2gov.com/MauiRPT/. You must have an email address to use the online payment service.
Payment by Phone: To make a payment by phone call 1-877-729-4775 and follow the voice instructions.
Property owners are reminded that failure to pay their taxes on time because of non-receipt of a tax bill will not excuse them from being assessed a 10% penalty plus interest at the rate of 12% per year.
Unless hand delivered on time, the United States Postal Service cancellation mark is the date of receipt by the County of Maui. County authorities note that is the taxpayer’s responsibility when sending via postal mail to assure that all envelopes are timely postmarked by the USPS on or before February 21, 2012.
