Office hours for Crawford County Tax Collector: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday
The Tax Collector's office is used for paying all County taxes, both delinquent
and current. All personal property and real estate taxes are to be paid at the Collector's
office. The time frame for paying taxes is from March 1 through October 15th. Any
taxes paid after October 15th will be assessed as delinquent and penalties will
be applied. All tax payers are encouraged to pay their taxes as early as possible
to avoid any inconvenience in the tax paying process.
Property values upon which taxes are based are generated in the Tax Assessor’s Office. Milleages are voted on by the taxpayers. The Tax Collector’s office calculates taxes by multiplying the values (from the Assessor’s office) times the mileages of the different school districts.
For a breakdown of where your tax dollars go, Crawford County taxpayers can find this information on the tax statement. Each school district is slightly different and will reflect a different rate on tax statements.
Paying your taxes early can save you a tremendous amount of time in the long run.
When October 15th arrives, the lines are usually long and everyone is in a rush.
One never knows when emergencies may strike and interrupt plans, so pay your taxes
early to avoid all late penalties!
