Medina County Treasurer John Burke said Tuesday that first-half 2017 tax bills should be mailed within the next 10 days to property owners.
Bills are due Feb. 9.
If taxpayers do not receive a bill in the mail,
Burke recommends calling his office at (330) 725-9748 or visit www.medinacountytreasurer.com and looking up their tax bill. Click “Search and Pay Taxes” in the left column to find your tax bill amount. Taxpayers can print an official tax bill and also can use online payment options.
“Online tax payments are easy, safe, fast and convenient, and we provide a variety of online payment options,” Burke said in a statement.
Taxpayers can pay with electronic check, credit card or through a PayPal account. There is a fee of $1.50 for Automated Clearing House electronic checks. The fee for credit card and PayPal is 2.25 percent of the payment amount. The fees are paid directly to the bank vendors and the county does not receive any part of the fees.
If paying by check, there are 24-hour, drive-up drop boxes at:
- treasurer’s office, county administration building,
- 144 N. Broadway St., Medina;
- Brunswick City Hall, 4095 Center Road;
- Lodi Library, 635 Wooster St.;
- Wadsworth Municipal Building, 120 Maple St.
Payment should include tax bill stub.
Payments may be made in person at the treasurer’s office 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The office will be open until
6 p.m. Feb. 9. Bring entire tax bill when paying in person.
Checks, cash or credit cards — Visa, MasterCard, Discover — are accepted over the counter. American Express is not. A convenience fee will be assessed by the vendor.
Tax payments that are mailed must be postmarked no later than the Feb. 9 due date to avoid a 5 percent penalty.
Payments made after Feb. 20 will be assessed a 10 percent penalty.
