The Tax Collector is pleased to offer several different payment options to the public.
Credit/Debit Cards: We contract with a third party vendor to offer this service to the public. A convenience fee of 2.6% will be added to your payment if you choose this option. This fee is charged by our vendor for providing the service. No additional monies are paid to the County.
EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer): We contract with a third party vendor to offer this service to the public. You will need your bank routing and account number to complete this transaction. There is a $1.50 fee for this service.
US Mail: You may always pay your taxes via US Mail. You must have your payment US post marked on or before the due date. You may do this at the Post Office by having them hand cancel your envelope at the counter. Do not rely on a mail receptacle as your guarantee that the payment is postmarked on time.
