Ways to Pay

  1. By Mail: Detach the bottom portion of your tax bill and mail it with your payment. The check or money order should be made payable to the “CUYAHOGA COUNTY TREASURER.”

    Please provide a parcel number for all payments submitted without a property tax bill and mail to:

    Cuyahoga County Treasurer
    P O Box 94547
    Cleveland OH 44101-4547

    Your envelope MUST be postmarked by the closing date of the tax collection in order to avoid penalties and interest.
  2. In Person: The Treasury is located in the Cuyahoga County Administrative Headquarters at 2079 East 9th Street. Cash, check, money order, credit card and debit card payments are accepted in the Cashier Department located on the first floor.

    Additional fees are assessed for credit card (2.45% with a $3.95 minimum) and debit card payments ($3.95 flat fee, in-person).

    Our normal business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. On the final day of the tax collection, business hours are extended from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. To avoid penalty and interests, payment must be made on or before the closing date.
  3. Online: Payments made via electronic check, credit or debit card may be submitted from the Treasurer’s website. Electronic check payments are processed via US Bank, on behalf of the Treasury. You are NOT required to have an account with US Bank to submit an electronic check payment.
