Medina County Treasurer John Burke said 67,619 second-half 2017 real estate tax bills were mailed Friday to property owners in Medina County.
The due date for property tax bills is July 13.
“I want to remind property owners that we offer a variety of ways they can make their tax payments,” Burke said in a statement. “In addition to paying with a check through the mail, more and more taxpayers are taking advantage of electronic checks, ACH, PayPal and credit cards.”
Information about payment options can be found at medinacountytreasurer.com.
Credit card payments can be completed over the phone by calling (888) 607-8389.
Taxpayers who use PayPal may take advantage of a “bill me later” option, with no payments and no interest if the full amount is paid within six months.
“Some taxpayers use this option to avoid the penalties and interest charged for late payment,” he said.
Payments may be made in person at the treasurer’s office in the Medina County Administration Building, 144 N. Broadway St., Medina, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. On the due date of July 13, the office will be open until 6 p.m.
If paying in person, be sure to have your tax bill with you. Payments may be made via check, cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
Tax payments that are mailed must be postmarked no later than the due date to avoid a 5 percent penalty. Payments made after July 24 will be assessed a 10 percent penalty.
If paying by check, 24-hour drive-up drop boxes are at the following locations:
- treasurer’s office, Administration Building, 144 N. Broadway St.;
- Brunswick Municipal Center, 4095 Center Road;
- Lodi Library, 635 Wooster St.;
- Wadsworth Municipal Building, 120 Maple St.
