Ways to Pay
There are several ways you can pay your CURRENT property tax bill.
By Mail: Please mail the tear off portion of your tax bill along with your check. Make the check payable to "CUYAHOGA COUNTY TREASURER". Your envelope MUST be postmarked by the last day of the collection, otherwise Ohio law requires the assessment of an automatic 10% penalty and interest. The closing date for the collection is on your bill.
Please send checks to:
Cuyahoga County Treasurer
P.O. Box 94547
Cleveland, OH 44101-4547
In Person: The Cuyahoga County Treasury is located at 2079 East 9th Street. You may go directly to the Cashier's Department (first floor) to pay if you have your original tax bill you received in the mail. If you do not have a bill, you should call the Taxpayer Services Department at (216) 443-7420 or visit that department which is also on the first floor. Our normal office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you pay in person, you must do so by the last day of the collection to avoid an automatic 10% penalty.

With your prior authorization, monthly, semi-annual, or annual payments are automatically deducted from your savings or checking account. Call (216) 443-7420 or click here for more information.
By Credit Card/Debit Card: You can pay your bill with MasterCard, Visa, or Discover by phone or on this website. Payments are processed by Official Payment Corporation. The rate is 2.45% for credit cards, $3.95 minimum. For debit cards only, when used at the Treasury Office, the fee is a $3.95 flat rate. Online debit cards are 1%, $1.00 minimum.
The Treasurer neither encourages nor discourages your use of a credit card. For those who feel the fee is excessive, we offer several other ways to pay. For those using a card to avoid the automatic 10% penalty, or who are trying to earn "points" on their credit card, we offer it as an option. To pay with a credit card by phone call Official Payment Corporation at 1-800-272-9829. Follow the instructions on the recorded message.
