Mathews tax bills contain slight error

Due to a printing error, the real estate tax bills that went out to Mathews property owners last week incorrectly state that the bills are for the second half of the 2013 taxes when, in fact, they are for the first half of that tax period, according to Mathews County Treasurer Wendy Stewart.

The first-half taxes are due on Friday, June 14. The original due date was June 5; however, the board of supervisors changed it at a special meeting earlier this month to allow residents a sufficient amount of time after receiving their statement.
