Tax Payment Options

PLEASE REMEMBER THE DUE DATE REQUIREMENTS FOR TAXES and allow adequate time for your payment to process timely through your financial institution. If your payment is received by the County after the due date is will be considered delinquent and will be returned for interest and penalty, per state law.

Always include your property account number with your payment- 14 digit (real property) or 7 digit (personal property)

Your tax payment check could be converted to an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). When you provide a check as payment, you authorize us either to use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your account, or to process the payment as a check transaction. When we use information from your check to make an EFT, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day we receive your payment and you will not receive your check back from your financial institution. Additional electronic funds transfer information is available online.
