Property Tax

Image of taxpayers paying their tax bills.

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 percent 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 2.5 percent 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. There will be extended hours to pay on December 23, 26, 27, 30 and 31 from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.  

Taxpayers can also place tax bill payments in the City’s night drop box, available 24 hours, conveniently located outside the north entrance to City Hall. Checks must be attached to the tax bill with a contact phone number. Tax receipts for payments received via the night drop box will be mailed to payees.

Treasury can also 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.
