Extended payment dates for military personnel are available through House Bill No. 390, effective March 4, 2002, which allows an extension of time for payment of real estate and manufactured home taxes for members of the National Guard and Reserve components of the armed forces of the United States who have been called to active or other duty under Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Noble Eagle, or the governor’s directive of September 29, 2001 or a successor to that directive. Application must be completed and an installment contract entered into no later than the last day of the sixth month following termination of active duty.
