Will partial payments stop tax bills from going to collections?

No. By state statute, all bills are sent to collection at the same time. We cannot legally prevent specific bills from being sent to collection. However, you may be able to pay off the bill in full prior to it being sent out or pay enough that fees will be minimal once sent. Collection fees are 15% of the outstanding bill amount by state law and increase monthly as the interest increases.
