The Madison County Courthouse is closed to help stop the spread of coronavirus, but work goes on.
WAAY 31 spoke with the Madison County tax collector about what she needs residents to remember to do, and how the office is trying to help.
At the courthouse the doors may be closed but the payments on your taxes are not.
Lynda Hall, Madison County tax collector, says you still must pay your taxes in person or online.
"Though the courthouse is closed, the tax collectors office is not. Even though you can't come in our office, you can come to the courthouse between 10 and 2," said Hall.
Hall told WAAY-31 her office is working every day to process tax payments.
The deadline for property tax payments was pushed back until March 31 since the coronavirus outbreak forced the courthouse to close.
But hall told us they still want to help people as much as possible.
"We do our best. We are still calling people to contact their taxpayers. We're doing the best we can because we don't want to sell people's property. We say this every year... We do not want to sell your property," she said.
Hall told us you can come up to north side of the courthouse and go up to the guard's gate...someone will quickly come out and process your payment.
At the end of it all, Hall said she knows this is a difficult time for many and she's happy her office could do something to help.
"The e-checks will go until the 31st of March and we'll continue to take personal checks through the end of March after that, it has to be a certified check," she said.
Hall told WAAY-31 if you have any comments, questions, or concerns you can still call them at 256-532-3370
or email firstname.lastname@example.org with anything you may have.
