Jackson County personal property, business and real estate tax bills can be paid at Treasury located in the lobby of City Hall. The City benefits by receiving 1% of the tax dollars collected for acting as an agent for Jackson County. Taxpayers benefit by receiving tax receipts immediately upon payment.
Payments received at Treasury can be in the form of cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express. A non-refundable 2.25% service fee is charged if using a credit or debit card. There is no fee for cash or check. Checks should be made payable to Jackson County Collector.
Drop Boxes - No contact. No Lines. Available 24/7.
Place an envelope containing the full tax bill and check payment in one of the convenient drop boxes located outside the north entrance of City Hall or in the drive-thru drop box in the alley behind City Hall near the Fire Station. Tax receipts for payments received via the drop boxes will be mailed to payees within four days. To receive a receipt via email within two days, print the email address clearly on the bill or envelope.
Treasury can assist taxpayers with an incorrect tax statement. To avoid long lines bring incorrect statements to Treasury for correction prior to the last week of December. Please note, titles, registrations or proof of sale documents are required for billing corrections.
Appointments are now required for Jackson County taxpayers requiring a tax transaction.
Non-tax transactions such as water payments, pet licenses, and other City business will be handled without an appointment. A taxpayer that has a correct bill and does NOT require a change may also make payment without an appointment.
