If you owe property taxes in Nueces County, the clock is ticking. Wednesday is the deadline to pay those taxes before penalties start getting tacked on.

You can head over to the Nueces County Courthouse to pay the tax in person or, for a much simpler way to do it, you can pay it online. Your payment will be processed instantly and uploaded to county files.

If you are late with your payment, you could face some serious financial penalties.

You can also pay your taxes via mail. Just be sure it's postmarked before midnight Jan. 31.
