(KMOV) – More than 300,000 tax bills in St. Charles County are more than a week late in being mailed out because of problems with a new computer system. The bills are expected to be delivered starting this weekend, but they are still due on December 31.
The county’s new $1.5 million computer system, intended to streamline the tax collection process, didn’t work like it should have.
The delay in getting the bills out will end up costing the company that sold the new computer system to the county in penalties and fines.
Taxpayers do not get a break or extension. Payment is still considered delinquent after January 1, 2012.
