Online Payments:

The Constitutional Tax Collector upgraded its property tax online payment system just in time for property tax season. Electronic checks (eChecks) are free. The online system also accepts all major credit cards (convenience fees are collected by the vendor and not retained by the agency). Online payments are processed within three business days.

Mailed Payments:

The majority of property owners still pay property tax bill by mail and most pay in November. This influx slows down payment processing. During peak property tax season, it takes 10 to 12 business days to process a paper check. Add in the time it takes for postal service delivery, and it takes three weeks or longer for payments to post. If there is an error with a paper check, the return time is six to eight weeks.

Other Payment Options:

  • Bank online check (bank or bill pay service)
  • Wire transfer
  • Drop box (located at each Tax Collector Service Center)
  • In person at a Tax Collector Service Center
