Making Online Payment

Inquiries for Paying Taxes Online

Can I make a payment for any type of property?
Unfortunately, at this time on our website we are only able to accept payments for Real Estate (RE) and Personal Property (PP) accounts. If you would like to make a payment for a Mobile Home, Utility, Heavy Equipment, or other account, we will require you to mail in your payment or bring it by one of our offices.

Can I use a credit card?
Yes, you may. However, the charges for processing credit card transactions are based upon a percentage of the total amount of payment. Payments may be accepted via VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, but a 2.5% transaction fee will be added to the payment. There is no charge for using a check online.

Can I pay for more than 1 property at a time?
Yes, our website can now accept one payment for multiple properties. Just choose the first property you would like to make a payment for, then click the PAY NOW feature. The next page provides a “Pay Another” option underneath the existing property. You can pay taxes for up to five properties at one time.

Do I have to pay the full installment amount?
No, you can make partial payments as needed. Once you chose the PAY NOW option, the next screen has a “Payment Amount” column. In that box, you may change the amount of money you want to pay at that time.

Can I pay my property taxes in installments?
Payments on your property can be paid in installments. The county provides a specified amount for two installments in the payment boxes. Be sure to check the box next to the installment that you are paying before entering the amount. Installment one must be paid before installment two.

How do I know that my payment was made?
After completing the payment process, a confirmation page with a corresponding confirmation number will be displayed. You're encouraged to print this page for your records. Additionally, we'll send you the same information by e-mail within one hour of your transaction.

What is the confirmation number?
Your personal confirmation number is very important. You'll need the confirmation number to access Payment Tracker, which follows your property tax payment process. After making a payment, your confirmation number appears on the final screen. You'll also receive the confirmation number by e-mail within an hour. For your records, we suggest you print one or both of these pages containing the confirmation number.

Is there a certain time when I can't pay my taxes online?
We are able to accept payments for prior year tax between January and June only. Current year taxes are available for online payments between July and December.

Why is my e-mail address required on the payment page?
We use e-mail to give you a final confirmation of your payment or to let you know if there was a problem processing your payment. We'll only use your e-mail address for confirmation . We will not sell or distribute your e-mail information to outside parties. If you don't wish to receive e-mail outside of confirmation messages, uncheck the box provided on the form.
