PROPERTY TAX PAYMENTS

PAYMENT OPTIONS 

Pay by Mail - see Current-Year Tax Payments, for information on where to mail your payment. 

  • If you mail your payment near the end of the month, we recommend you walk it in to the Post Office and ask them to hand postmark your envelope to ensure that it has a current month’s postmarked date. 
  • When sending payments, please include the tax bill payment stub (on the top of your tax bill) so the payment will be applied to the correct parcel. 
    • If you require a receipt, please send a self-addressed stamped envelope; otherwise receipts will not be mailed. 
  • If you choose to use your bank’s BILL PAY option, be aware that these checks are typically mailed from out of state by third-party processors without a postmark. Your confirmation information from your bank is not an acceptable proof of timely payment. We must have an envelope with a U.S. postmark or a letter from the post office to prove the payment was mailed by the due date and that a postal delay is responsible for the lateness of your payment per State Statute 74.69
