Payments in Person or by Mail

Cash, checks, or money orders will be accepted from taxpayers wishing to make payments in person at the Tax Collector's Office, 305 Main Street, Room 121, during office hours.
The Tax Collector will also accept a check or money order by mail to the same address above. When mailing payment by check or money order, remember to include your account number on the check or money order. Please do not mail cash payments. Payments are considered timely if post marked on or before the due date.
Please Note: Credit Card, Debit Card, or E-Check payments CANNOT be accepted at the Tax Collector's Office. Current provisions of Oregon law prevent direct payment of property taxes by this method. However, these types of payments will be accepted online over the internet. This service is provided by a financial institution charging a convenience fee. See below:
