Polston reminds property owners of upcoming property tax bills; provides monthly sheriff’s office report

Russell County Sheriff Derek Polston is reminding Russell County property owners that property tax bills are set to be mailed out at the end of the month.

Payments can be made at the sheriff’s office, but Polston is reminding property owners that wait times may be longer than usual due to COVID-19. Payments can also be taken over the phone with a credit/debit card. Payments can also be mailed to the sheriff’s office, which Polston said he encourages. The mailing address will be located on the tax bill.

Payment can be made via money order, cash, check, and credit/debit card. A small fee will apply for credit card payments.

Those who pay between Oct. 1 and Nov. 1 will receive a two-percent discount.

If you do not receive a tax bill, you are asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 270-343-2191.
