July 1 is the deadline for taxpayers participating in the half/split payment option to make the final payment without penalty and interest, according to the Galveston County Tax Office.

July 1 is also the deadline for those having difficulty paying 2018 property taxes to establish a payment arrangement to avoid the 15 percent to 20 percent delinquent attorney fees that will be added July 2.

Customers can pay in person at any of the full-time branches or Thursdays and Fridays in Friendswood. Payments also will be accepted online at www.galcotax.com. To pay via telephone, call 866-865-1433 or 866-865-1435 (Spanish).

Payments also can be mailed to P.O. Box 1169, Galveston, TX 77553.

For information, call the property tax department, 409-766-2481 or 877-766-2284.
