A steady stream of people filed into the collector's office at the Livingston County Courthouse Wednesday to pay 2017 property taxes. Taxes must be paid by Dec. 31 in order to avoid penalty. Since Dec. 31 falls on a Sunday, the last day to pay taxes in person and without penalty at the collector's office is Friday. Taxpayers may put their tax payments in the drop box on the east side of the courthouse as late as December 31 to avoid penalty. They also may pay online at www.livingstonmo.devnetwedge.com. A convenience fee will be charged for taxpayers choosing to pay by credit card or debit card. An 11 percent penalty will be assessed if taxes are paid after the Dec. 31 deadline. The customer service window at the U.S. Post Office in Chillicothe is open until noon on Saturday. Traffic has been brisk throughout December at the collector's office, and collections have exceeded $6.7 million as of Wednesday, according to Paula McCoy, Livingston County collector-treasurer.
