I have read the policies below
to pay online
SecurityYour payment transaction is secure by state of the industry encryption methods and certified through VeriSign.
PoliciesPayments made before midnight on weekdays will be credited to accounts with an effective date the same as the date paid; weekend payments will be credited on the following Monday. In the event of a holiday, payments will be credited as of the next business day. Depending on volume, it may take 24-48 hours for your payment to be reflected online.
Any penalties and interest owed plus any past due payments will be included in the total online amount due. If you are up to date in your payments, you can refer to your current tax bill to determine the amount you wish to pay. Please call the office if you are unsure about the amount due, or are not in agreement with the balance outstanding.
Interest accrues daily on past due real estate and personal property tax bills.
All tax payments are due on the due dates, or the following business day if the due date falls on a weekend or holiday.
If a misposted payment is discovered on an account, an adjustment will be made reversing any incorrect credit that could result in interest due.
Any payments that are returned for insufficient funds must be resolved directly with the Treasurer/Collector's office, and another online payment for the same item should not be done. Replacement funds must be made in cash, bank check, or money order with an additional $25.00 bounce check fee included.
Delinquent accounts must be paid directly to the Treasurer along with the appropriate fees.
