A BILL to amend and reenact §11A-1-3 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to allowing quarterly payment of real and personal property taxes.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That §11A-1-3 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:

ARTICLE 1. ACCRUAL AND COLLECTION OF TAXES.

§11A-1-3. Accrual; time for payment; interest on delinquent taxes.

    (a) All current taxes assessed on real and personal property may be paid in two installments. The first installment shall be payable on September 1 of the year for which the assessment is made, and shall become delinquent on October 1; the second installment shall be payable on the first day of the following March 1 and shall become delinquent on April 1. Taxes paid on or before the date when they are payable, including both first and second installments or quarterly installments, shall be subject to a discount of two and one-half percent. If taxes are not paid on or before the date on which they become delinquent, including both first and second installments or quarterly installments, interest at the rate of nine percent per annum shall be added from the date they become delinquent until paid. Beginning July 1, 2011, current taxes assessed on real and personal property may be paid in quarterly installments. The first quarterly installment shall be payable on September 1 of the year for which the assessment is made, and shall become delinquent on October 1; the second quarterly installment shall be payable on the following January 1 and shall become delinquent on February 1; the third installment shall be payable on the following March 1 and shall become delinquent on April 1; the fourth installment shall be payable on the following August 1 and shall become delinquent on September 1.     (b) With regard to real and personal property taxes, when any return, claim, statement or other document is required to be filed, or any payment is required to be made within a prescribed period or before a prescribed date, and the applicable law requires delivery to the office of the sheriff of a county of this state, the methods prescribed in §11-10-5f for timely filing and payment to the Tax Commissioner or Department of tax and Revenue shall be the same methods utilized for timely filing and payment with such sheriff. Nothing contained in this subsection (b) shall prohibit the sheriff from establishing additional methods of payment in accordance with the provisions of section eight-a of this article.
