Will the penalty and interest be waived if I show proof that I sent my payment timely, but the check has not cleared my financial institution?

Interest will not be waived. A request for waiver of penalty must be received in writing and may be considered if the taxes and interest are paid in full. Provide documentation such as:

  • A copy of your check register or a carbon copy of the check and a copy of the financial institution statement supporting that the funds were available at the time the check was sent
  • A letter of explanation (be sure to include your account number/Social Security number)

Mail the above information and a copy of the bill to the address on the bill you have received.
