Bill Pay Service offered through your Bank

If you use a BillPay service through your bank, please be sure that you are using your Property Identification Number (PIN) to pay your tax bill, or your Water account number if you are paying your water bill. 

  • Your payments are applied based on the account number you provide.  You must use the correct account number on your timely payments if you want to avoid late charges. 
  • If you made a payment to an incorrect account and need to have the payment moved, you will be assessed a charge for that service.  Please verify that you are using the correct account number BEFORE you make your payment. 

In Person

The Treasurer's Office is on the first floor in City Hall, located at 203 S Troy Street. Taxpayers who have escrow arrangements with banks or other financial institutions paying taxes on their behalf will receive a "courtesy copy" of their bill.
