Mayor Michael Victorino has authorized a 60-day deferral of the 10 percent penalty for Real Property Taxes due on Feb. 20, 2021. Assessment of the penalty will be deferred through April 21, 2021, to help with the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taxpayers may make Real Property Tax payments from Feb. 20 to April 21, 2021, without incurring the 10 percent penalty. However, the standard one percent monthly interest charge for unpaid balances will apply.

“We don’t want to penalize our residents and businesses who are experiencing the inability to pay their full amount upon its due date,” Mayor Victorino said. “We believe the penalty deferral can help those who need a little extra time to pay their real property tax.” 

Details of the 10 percent penalty deferral include:

  • The deferral is for the 10 percent penalty for real property taxes due on Feb. 20, 2021 only.
  • To avoid the 10 percent penalty, taxpayers must submit payments, in full, by April 21, 2021.  Any outstanding balance owed as of April 22, 2021, will be assessed the 10 percent penalty.
  • One percent interest on unpaid balances after Feb. 20 will not be waived.  Interest will accrue monthly beginning on March 1 and continue until the balance is paid.

All payments may be sent to: County of Maui, Department of Finance, Treasury Division, Real Property Tax Collection, 110 Alaʻihi Street, Suite 108, Kahului, HI 96732.
