Payments placed in the drop box after 5 p.m. will be considered next-day payments.  The City of Graham will be glad to work out a payment plan for you, but you must contact the Tax Collector to work out an agreement that will get your taxes paid in full before they become delinquent.  The City of Graham does accept pre-payments in any amount before the bills are processed.
