For your convenience, the Treasurer's Office accepts automated credit card
payments via Official Payments Corp.
Please allow 3-5 business days for the payment
to post to the Treasurer's database. This vendor will charge a fee of 2.35% of
your tax payment on payments of more than $42.55. A flat service fee of $1 is charged
on tax payments of $42.55 or less.
The Maricopa County Treasurer's
Office does not receive any portion of this convenience fee.
Why must I pay a fee to pay by credit card?
By law, the Maricopa County Treasurer is not permitted to charge any fee
for processing tax payments. In addition, the Treasurer is not allowed to
deduct banking fees from the property tax (levy) collected, which would result
in apportioning a lesser amount to the taxing jurisdictions to fund their operations.
This means that, unlike private sector merchants, the Treasurer's Office
cannot absorb banking fees into the cost of doing business.
To make an electronic payment, without an additional fee, contact
your financial institution and ask about e-Check via bill pay
or consider using this Web site to make an e-Check payment.
Pay online using a credit card or you
