Software error leads to new tax bills being mailed

Posted on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 11:30 am

Two tax issues led to the mailing of new tax bills to Audrain County residents living in Tax Code 65 and Tax Code 72.
According to Audrain County Collector Kate Becker, a programming error led to the new Laddonia Fire District Tax Levy being dropped off all tax bills for the City of Laddonia.
“If your tax bill(s) are in Tax Code 65, you will be receiving a new tax bill in the mail with the updated amount,” Becker said.
Another programming error led to bills in Tax Code 72 being without the Tri-County Care Center Nursing Home tax.
Becker said bills for Tax Code 72 will also be remailed.
“We apologize for any inconvenience,” Becker added.
“We are starting with a new software company in the spring.”
Becker also said that if a payment has already been mailed to the Audrain County Collector’s office, that it will be mailed back to the sender.
