It’s almost tax time again, and the Mohave County Treasurer’s office will once again be opening satellite offices in Lake Havasu City and Bullhead during the last two weeks in October.  According to Supervisor Buster Johnson, there are some changes being made to the way the taxes will be collected this year that taxpayers need to be made aware of.  “In the past, taxpayers were able to deposit their payments in a drop box in the Lake Havasu City Complex,” Johnson stated.  “For the past seventeen years, my office has been helping out the Treasurer by accepting check or money orders from constituents who want to pay their taxes in person,” Johnson stated.  According to Johnson, as of September 1, the County Treasurer has removed the drop box in Lake Havasu City and is requesting that his office no longer accept payments.  “Payments can now only be accepted by employees of the Treasurer’s Office,” Johnson continued. According to Mohave County Treasurer Cindy Cox, there have been several security issues regarding payments that have led her to implement these changes.  “We have no one in that building from the Treasurer’s office and this is something I am uncomfortable not having control over,” Cox stated.
For taxpayers wishing to make payments in person, the Treasurer’s office will be holding limited office hours in both Lake Havasu and Bullhead City from October 20 to October 24 and October 27 to the 31st.
Bullhead City Temporary Satellite Office will be located at 1130 Hancock Road. Lake Havasu City Temporary Satellite Office will be located at 2001 College Drive. Office hours for both locations will be from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with the office closed for lunch from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. According to Treasurer Cox, cash payments will not be accepted at the satellite offices.  “We are doing this for security.  The only location that is equipped to accept cash payments is through the cash payment window in Kingman,” Cox stated. For further information on property tax payments, please contact the Mohave County Treasurer’s office at 928-753-0737 or visit: http://www.mohavecounty.us/ContentPage.aspx?id=132
