LIHUE — The first installment of real property taxes for the 2017-18 tax year is due on Aug. 20.
Because Aug. 20 falls on a Sunday, taxpayers can pay their real property tax on Aug. 21 without incurring any penalty.
Payments can be made at www.kauai.gov/paypropertytax, by mail, in person or at a drop box located outside the Kapule Building at the Lihue Civic Center.
Property tax bills were recently mailed to owners on record or their respective mortgage institutions for those with impound accounts.
Property owners who pay their real property taxes directly and have not yet received their property tax bills should inquire at the Real Property Tax Collection office at the Lihue Civic Center, Kapule Building, 4444 Rice St., Suite 463, or call 241-4272.
Failure to pay real property taxes by the due date will result in a 10 percent penalty, as well as 12 percent interest per year.
