Important Website Disclosures

General Website Usage: Users of this service assume responsibility to enter the correct bank information. After submitting your bank information, a payment reference number will be issued. Receiving a payment reference number is not a guarantee that your payment will process successfully when the information is submitted to your bank. If the routing number or the account number is entered incorrectly, or if the account does not contain sufficient funds for settlement, the transaction may not successfully complete.


Please note: not all accounts are set up to make electronic payments. If a transaction fails it will be canceled as though no payment was attempted. If the payment is returned or remains unpaid after the delinquent date, the Tax Collector must also charge the penalties and costs required by law.


The Tax Collector does not guarantee uninterrupted availability of electronic systems. If payment is not received by the delinquent date, the taxpayer is responsible for penalties required by law.

 

Payments: There is a $1.00 convenience fee for processing ACH (E-Check) payments and a 2.39% convenience fee for credit card payments which is paid directly to our payment-processing vendor. The County receives no portion of the convenience fee. Multiple bill installments may be paid as one payment transaction utilizing our shopping cart feature. There is no fee to search our property tax records and print bill installments. The current delinquent penalty for late property tax payments is 10%, which is much higher than the credit card convenience fee.
