    Tax Payment Options

     There are several options for paying property taxes.

     Electronic Check (E-Payment)

    You may choose to pay your taxes online by electronic check at no additional charge to you.  To pay online, you will create an electronic check that will draw funds from your checking account the same way a paper check does.  Once the transaction is completed, you will instantly receive an e-mail confirming the receipt of your payment.  The check must come from a regular checking account to be processed correctly.  Accounts tied to a credit card, mutual fund, or other special accounts are not eligible for this payment choice.

     Monthly Payment Plan

    The monthly payment plan is an option for taxpayers who have become past due in their property taxes.  In Feburary and July, the two months a year when current taxes are due, the current taxes MUST BE PAID IN FULL.  Failure to pay current taxes will void past due payment plans.

    All penalties and interest will not be added to the past due account as long as terms of the agreement are followed.  If a payment is missed, the agreement is void and the Treasurer's Office will add the penalty and interest that would have been added prior to the agreement.

    Any property that is more than one (1) year past due and NOT in a past due payment plan is subject to foreclosure.  To inquire about an agreement, contact the Delinquency Department at 937-225-4010 Option 2
