“We are pleased to provide free e-Check services and low convenience fees to our taxpayers. The convenience fee charged by the vendor to pay by credit or debit card remains at 2.15%,” said McRae.
Taxpayers may pay online by going to http://mctotx.org and select Property Tax or access their individual account by scanning the QR code on the statement with a smart device. Tax statements can also be downloaded from the website. Tax statements for properties paid through mortgage escrow accounts were sent to the requesting mortgage company. A printable version of the receipt is available online and paper receipts will be issued upon request.
Taxpayers are urged to contact the Tax Office if they have not received their tax statement by mid-November.
“It is important that a property owner contact us if they do not receive their statement,” said McRae.
All payments, including metered mail, online bill pay and e-checks, must bear a USPS
postmark or be received on or before January 31st. Depositing payments in a USPS collection box does not guarantee a postmark for that day and could result in the accrual of penalty and interest if done on or near a delinquency date. Property taxes must be paid by January 31, 2021 to avoid incurring penalties and interest.
