All second installment payments are due by July 31st, and payable to the Douglas County Treasurer.
FYI: If you miss paying the first installment by January 31st, then the second installment option for July is lost and interest begins accruing at 1% per month on the “entire” balance due, beginning February 1st, until paid in full.
