Penalty on Property Taxes Waived

Mt. Pleasant City Commissioners approved waiving the 3% penalty for summer and winter property taxes paid after February 16, 2021 and before March 2, 2021. State law allows the City Commission to waive all, or part of penalty fees, but not interest on past due taxes. Delinquent summer tax payments are subject to a 6% interest tax rate.
