How do I make a payment with a credit or debit card?

The Tax Collector’s office can accept Real Estate, Motor Vehicle, Tangible taxes, and utility payments via credit or debit card. Taxpayers have the option to pay their tax bills by major credit card (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover), or by debit card with the Visa or MasterCard logo.


Card-based payments may be made in-person or online. Online transactions require the payee to know the unique correlating account number and pin number for a given account, information which is located at the top of the every tax bill and utility bill.


For online payments, please access the “Online Tax and Utility Collection System.”
