ATTENTION ALL TAX PAYERS!
WE CANNOT ACCEPT PARTIAL PAYMENTS SO PAYMENTS MADE FOR TAXES FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES (CHECK/CREDIT CARD COMBINATION) MUST HAVE PRIOR AUTHORIZATION BEFORE PROCEEDING.  PLEASE CONTACT THIS OFFICE BEFORE MAKING PAYMENTS FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES OR PAYMENTS WILL BE VOIDED AND RETURNED.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.    
 
Please add a 10% penalty to all 1st and 2nd installment payments.  Delinquent 2nd installments also incur a $10 cost fee.

 To pay by Virtual Check, clichere 
 
The Tax Collector provides Virtual Check processing without a fee as a courtesy service. 
 
You will need:
           •  Your check book (Do not use a deposit slip)
           •  Your tax bill
 
MAKE SURE YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBERS AND ROUTING NUMBERS ARE  ENTERED CORRECTLY!  REFUSING TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN A RETURNED CHECK CHARGE OF $35.00 AND ALL PENALTIES AND COSTS WILL APPLY.  IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR PROPER ACCOUNT AND ROUTING NUMBERS CONTACT YOUR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION. 
 
We only accept U.S. funds drawn on U.S. based financial institutions.  
 
SOME ACCOUNTS MAY NOT ACCEPT THIS TYPE OF TRANSACTION.  (Money Market accounts, investment-type checking accounts, EFT/ACH specific accounts). Contact your bank for approval first.  Funds are not an electronic debit as we receive a paper check to deposit.
 
* Note: Do not use Virtual Check if your payment method has been restricted to money orders, cash, or cashier’s check, as your Virtual Check payment will be refused.
 
Virtual Checks will be accepted until 11:59 pm PST December 10th and April 10th.  Please allow yourself ample time for processing as anything received after 11:59 pm PST will be returned for penalties.
