TEMPERANCE - The deadline for Bedford Township residents to pay 2010 summer tax bills without interest penalties is Sept. 14.
The tax bills, which went out July 1, can be paid at the Fifth Third branch in Lambertville, Citizens Bank in Temperance, or at the township Government Center on Jackman Road.
Residents can use the drive-through window at the township office or deposit payments in the drop slot after business hours. Payments can also be mailed.
Also, seniors citizens over 65 years old and taxpayers who are permanently or partially disabled could be eligible to delay payment without being assessed a penalty by filing 2010 1040 CR forms with the treasurer. The forms must be completed and submitted before Sept. 14.
Residents who fail to pay tax bills before Sept. 15 will be charged 1 percent interest and another 1 percent will be added the first of every month thereafter.
