Treasurer’s office to reopen BHC branch Oct. 26
KINGMAN — The Mohave County Treasurer’s Office will reopen a temporary office in Bullhead City starting Oct. 26.
Mohave Electric Cooperative has offered part of its office for the treasurer’s office to serve property taxpayers in Bullhead City so they do not have to travel to the county administration building in Kingman, Mohave County Treasurer Cindy Cox said.
The Bullhead City satellite office at MEC, 928 Hancock Road, will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with the window closed for lunch from 1 to 2 p.m. from Oct. 26 through Nov. 1, Cox said.
The treasurer’s offices in Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City were closed permanently in 2008 to save money. By law, the treasurer’s office must accept cash as well as personal checks and credit cards at its offices. The satellite office in Bullhead City was discontinued in October 2015 because the office did not have the level of security needed to accept cash.
Tax bills, which were mailed out in September, can be paid in two installments with one installment due Oct. 1 and becoming delinquent if not paid by Nov. 1. The next installment is due March 1 and becomes past due after May 1. If taxes are less than $100, they are due Oct. 1 and become past due after Dec. 31.
The property tax rate for the 2018-19 fiscal year in Mohave County was set in August at $1.9696 per $100 assessed value on a home.
Each August, the county supervisors adopt the tax levies and rates for the county’s taxing authorities, including the school equalization tax. Tax authorities include the county, library district, flood control district, Mohave Community College and school and fire districts.
Property owners can pay their bill online at www.mohavecounty.us and following the link to the treasurer’s office.
