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.
