Satellite Property Tax Collection Locations Announced In Bradley County

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Bradley County Trustee Mike Smith has released the schedule for the satellite property tax collection locations for February.  Mr. Smith said, “The satellite locations have been very popular with taxpayers.  They have eliminated the need for citizens to come to the courthouse and have allowed property owners to pay their property taxes closer to home.”

To pay at a satellite location, taxpayers must have their tax statement along with a check, no cash will be accepted.

The collection locations and dates are as follows:

                        Saturday, Feb. 15 - Oak Grove Elementary School

                        Saturday, Feb. 15 - Hopewell Elementary School

                        Saturday, Feb. 15 - Waterville Elementary School
