Walton County Tax Notice is on its Way

Walton county tax notices to be mailed Nov. 1
Taxpayers responsible for payment regardless of receipt of bill

Walton County tax bills will be mailed on Monday, Nov. 1. The Walton County Tax Collector’s Office urges property owners who haven’t received a bill to please contact the office at 850-892-8121 or through the contact us page at

Each year a substantial amount of tax bills are returned to the Walton County Tax Collector’s Office as undeliverable. While a tax bill may not have been deliverable to the taxpayer, the property owner is still responsible for paying their taxes by the March 31 deadline to avoid penalty.

“Undeliverable mail is an issue for every tax office in the State,” said Tax Collector Rhonda Skipper. “We are required by law to mail the bill to the address that is on the official tax roll. Property owners often change addresses and forget to notify the Property Appraiser’s Office of their new mailing address.”

Property owners who have not received a bill can visit and utilize the tax search feature to find out the amount owed or contact the office for another bill.

A four percent discount is extended to property owners who pay current year taxes by Nov. 30.
To make official address changes to the tax roll, taxpayers can contact the Property Appraiser’s Office at 850-892-8123 or download and submit a change of address form from
