What is the best way to pay my tax bill or statement?

The most convenient way to pay your tax bill is by mail, or by ACH payment (E Check). A courtesy reply envelope is included with your tax bill if you wish to pay by mail.  Be sure to write your list numbers on your check. List numbers are shown on your payment coupons.

If you wish to have a receipt returned to you, please send the entire lower portion of your tax bill (both payment coupons) and a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your payment. You may expect to receive a receipt back within a few days. We will not send back your receipt if you fail to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Payments legibly postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before Monday, February 3, 2020 (because February 1 fell on a Saturday)  are on time, regardless of when they are received by the Tax Collector’s office.  For your own benefit, obtain a ‘receipt of mailing’ from the U.S. Postal Service when mailing your payment if you choose to mail your payment close to the deadline.

For a modest fee of $1.50,  you may pay by ACH payment (E Check) from our website. This affords you the certainty that your payment has been received, eliminates anxiety and worry about mail delivery, eliminates the burden of going to city hall or one of the local banks to pay in person, and allows you to process the transaction at a time that is convenient to you.  There are links to pay on line on the tax collector’s home page.  

During the collection period only (from the time new tax bills are mailed through the last day to pay), taxpayers may pay their tax bills at area banks. You do not have to be a customer of the bank in order to pay there, and there is no charge to you for this service.  This service will again become available when the new tax bills are issued in June, 2020.
