Direct Payment Service

This service allows you to authorize the Treasurer to debit your checking or savings account to pay your property taxes automatically on a monthly, semi-annual, or annual basis.  This service may help you in several ways:

§   It saves time – fewer checks to write.

§   Helps meet your tax payment obligation in a convenient and timely manner – even if you’re on vacation or out of town.

§   No lost or misplaced statements, your payment is always on time.

§   Saves postage.

§   No risk of receiving a late payment penalty.

Here’s how the Direct Payment service works:

You authorize regularly scheduled payments to be made from your checking or savings account.  Then, just sit back and relax.  Your payments will be made automatically on the specified day.  The authority you give to charge your account will remain in effect until you notify us in writing to terminate the authorization.

Monthly Payments:  Select this option if you are using Direct Payment to make monthly payments as part of our Monthly Budget Pay or SMART Payments plan (see information about these plans on this site).  You will have 5 regular monthly payments deducted from your account and then a tax statement will be mailed to you.  The statement will show the amount paid so far and the remaining balance due that will be deducted from your account in the sixth month.  (We will notify you if your regular monthly payment amount is going to change.)

Semi-Annual Payments:  You will receive a tax statement twice a year, in January and June, showing the amount of tax that is due.  The amount due will be deducted from your account on the half-year tax due date.

Annual:  You will receive a tax statement in January that shows both the half-year and full-year tax amount.  The full-year amount will be deducted from your account on the first-half tax due date.
