LIHU‘E — The county has extended the deadline to pay the second installment of property taxes from Feb. 20 to April 23, to lessen the hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
To ensure payment is made in full by April 23, taxpayers are encouraged to make installment payments leading up to the due date.
Payments can be made online at kauairpt.ehawaii.gov, by mail, in person, or at the drop box located outside the Kapule Building at the Lihu‘e Civic Center. Checks should be made payable to the Director of Finance.
No appointments are necessary to visit Real Property Collections, but access to the Kapule Building lobby will be limited to no more than 10 people at a time in order to adhere to social-distancing guidelines.
Therefore, to avoid long wait times, the remote-payment options described above are preferred.
Failure to pay real-property taxes in full by Friday, April 23, will result in a 10% penalty, as well as 12% interest per year.
