Some property owners in the 21042 zip code in Ellicott City did not receive their tax bills mailed out earlier this month, prompting county officials to request a post office investigation

Second installment notices were sent to all semi-annual tax bill payers Dec.1, but some homeowners in the 21042 zip code still haven't received their bills.

The Department of Finance is mailing residents in the area who still have a balance due a replacement bill this week. Residents whose bills have already been paid can ignore the new bill.

Payments received by Jan.31 from property owners in that area code will not be charged interest or penalties.

County Offices will close at 5 p.m. Friday and will not re-open until 8 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3. Residents can call the county's tax customer Service number at 410-313-2062 for more information.
