Today is the last day for Nueces County property owners to pay their 2007 property taxes before penalties and interest accrue.

Nueces County Tax Assessor-Collector Ramiro "Ronnie" Canales said last week his office had forwarded about 52,000 reminder statements to property owners, reminding them that 2007 property taxes will become delinquent Friday.

Unpaid property taxes will be subject to penalties and interest until they are paid in full.
