Many people find making a monthly payment is the most convenient way to pay their taxes – particularly if they have recently paid off a mortgage and are used to paying monthly, or find it easier to pay in small installments rather than a large lump sum.
Taxpayers can choose between three options to suit their needs:
- Monthly Billing – Annual taxes are divided into monthly payments. You will receive monthly coupons.
- Monthly EFT – Annual taxes are divided into monthly payments which are automatically withdrawn from your checking account.
- Semi-Annual EFT – Semi-annual tax payments are automatically withdrawn from your checking account.
To enroll, please complete the application and a representative will contact you. You can also apply by calling 937-225-4010, option 1.
Past-Due Payment Plans
Taxpayers who are behind on paying their property taxes may be eligible for a monthly payment plan. Property owners entering into payment contracts will become current on their property taxes by paying both the past-due taxes as well as the current amounts due.
As long as the terms of the contract are followed, no additional penalties or interest will be added. If payments are missed, the agreement is void and any penalty and interest that was frozen will be added back in.
Please note that any property more than one-year past due, and NOT on a payment plan, is subject to foreclosure and a tax lien.
