Payment Options

Pay in person at the Treasurer's Office by cash, check, money order or cashier’s check. 

Avoid waiting in line to pay your taxes:

Pay by mail.  Must be postmarked on or before the due date.  Please provide a self addressed/stamped envelope if you would like a receipt sent to you.  Please do not send cash in the mail.  Late payments will incur penalties.

Pay by phone by calling 844-556-7318.  Payment must be made by 4:00 p.m. on the due date.  User fees will apply ($1.50 transaction fee plus 2.65% or bank transfer/e-check for just $2.00 per transaction. You must have your Parcel ID # (57#) available when you call.

Pay on-line by credit card, debit card or bank transfer/e-check (CLICK HERE). This links to a convenient and secure portal powered by GovTech Services which allows taxpayers to easily pay their property taxes on-line, search for parcels, pay for multiple parcels at one time, and schedule future payments.  Taxpayers need not have their tax bill in hand, as the tax amount due can be found through one of the multiple search options available on the site, allowing users to search by name, address or parcel number.  Property tax owners, mortgage companies, local banks, and utility companies can take advantage of the user-friendly platform.  Pay single or multiple parcels at one time.  Credit/Debit card payments will incur a $1.50 transaction fee plus 2.65% or you can pay by bank transfer/e-check for just $2.00 per transaction. Payment must be made by 4:00 p.m. on the due date. 

Partial payments can be made anytime, however your installment total must be paid by the due date to avoid any late fees and/or penalties.  We encourage you to utilize this method of payment if it is easier for you to budget your tax payment. 

Late fees and penalties will be added to your tax bill if payments are not paid by the required due date.  Avoid these added costs by paying early.

 

BE AWARE if you recently bought property or split a property after the assessment date of the previous year, you may need to have the former owner’s name to pay the taxes due and you should confirm with the title company who is responsible for paying the taxes.  With split properties, you will need to contact the Auditor’s office and the Assessor’s Office to have a split sheet done before you pay the taxes.

Mobile Home

Moving Permits and Title Transfers

 

If you are moving a mobile home, you are required to have a moving permit.  Per State Statute, the title must be in the current owner's name before a moving permit will be issued. 

Beginning in 2013, State Statute requires that mobile home titles be in the current mobile home owner's name.  You will need to bring the mobile home title with you to the Treasurer’s Office to transfer the title.

If the mobile home title has been lost, you will need to apply through the courts to get a new title issued. 

All taxes (delinquent and current) associated with the mobile home must be paid in order for a title transfer or moving permit to be completed. 

If you are buying a mobile home, you will come to our office with the title to complete the paperwork to transfer the title to the new owner(s). 

If the mobile home is being purchased on contract, State Statute requires the contract to be recorded and to specify who is responsible for the taxes until the contract is paid and released. 

AGAIN - prior to a moving permit or transfer of title being issued,

all taxes must be paid-in-full on the mobile home.

Be sure all taxes have been paid BEFORE you purchase a mobile home.
