(pictured) SULLIVAN SUGGESTS PAYMENT PLANS Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan urges taxpayers who did not pay their 2013 property taxes by January 31, 2014, to set-up a payment plan as soon as possible. "Last week, my office sent out more than 100,000 notices to tax accounts who did not pay their 2013 property tax bill," said Sullivan. "I strongly urge those account holders to contact my office to see if they qualify for a payment plan. If delinquent account holders do not setup a payment agreement by June 30, 2014, by law, we must turn their accounts to collection attorneys." Accounts turned over to collection attorneys will be subject to an additional 15-20 percent fee, and may end up in foreclosure, resulting in the delinquent property being sold at public auction. Taxpayers can contact Sullivan's office by phone at 713-368-2000 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if they have questions.
