BIG SPRING - If you live in Big Spring and haven't paid your property taxes for 2012 yet, here's a warning.
If you don't pay by the 31st of January, you will be slapped with a seven percent penalty.
The longer you wait, the higher the penalty will get.
Payments need to be made out to Diane Carter, the new Tax Assessor for Howard County.
If you have any questions, call the Howard County Tax Collector's Office.
