Important Note
If you are using a Windows 7 or 8 PC:
If you are using Internet Explorer 10 or higher, the Self Service website may encounter problems running some tasks.  But that can be solved by changing to "Compatibility View" in your browser.
 If you are not familiar with that setting, the instructions are on this Microsoft Internet Explorer Webpage


Wicomico County Citizen Self Service


The county’s web service, Citizen Self Service, gives you access to view and pay:
  • Real Estate Property Taxes
  • Personal Property Taxes
  • Utility Bills (county only, not city or municipality)
Title Companies, Attorneys, Mortgage Companies and Escrow Companies are encouraged to use this website to gather information normally obtained by phone, via fax or in person at the County Finance Office.

In cooperation with Wicomico County, Official Payments Corporation offers the opportunity to pay taxes by telephone or directly over the Internet either at home or at the Wicomico County Department of Finance, 1st floor of the Government Office Building.

Fast & Secure

The Online Bill Payment service is fast and secure. In order to process your payment, Official Payments Corporation, the credit card service provider, charges a nominal convenience fee based on the amount of the transaction. Official Payments Corporation gives you the ability to calculate the convenience fee prior to starting the payment process.

Important Restrictions


As of May 1st of each year the County imposes restrictions on payment methods for delinquent bills because the bills have entered the advertising phase of the tax collection process (tax sale). The following restrictions are therefore imposed:
  • Payment must be for the full amount of all outstanding delinquent amounts due the county and municipality plus interest, penalties, attorney fees, and advertising costs.
  • No partial payments will be accepted.
  • A partial payment made by credit card or debit card through Official Payments Corporation will be rejected and the property will continue through the Real Estate Tax Sale Process.
  • No personal checks will be accepted.
  • No electronic personal checks will be accepted.
  • Cash, money order, bank check, credit card, or debit card will be accepted.
