Delinquent Personal Property Taxes
The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the collection of unsecured Personal Property taxes for Yuma County. Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S) 42-18052 provides payment due dates and a schedule outlining when personal property taxes become delinquent. Property taxes are normally paid in two (2) installments; the first payment is due October 1st and the second payment is due March 1st. The October payment becomes delinquent after 5:00 pm on November 1st and the March payment becomes delinquent after 5:00 pm on May 1st. If the total amount of the tax is $100.00 or less, the full amount is due on October 1st, and becomes delinquent after 5:00 pm on November 1st.
The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office accepts full payment for delinquent Personal Property accounts either by mail or at our office locations at 141 S. 3rd Avenue in Yuma or 13190 S.
