Ways to Pay

The Cuyahoga County 2019 Second Half Real Estate tax deadline has been extended to August 13, 2020. Tax bills are expected to be mailed at least twenty days prior to the deadline, per ORC 323.13. Taxpayers are encouraged to use online resources, U.S. Postal mail, and the County drop boxes to make their payments.

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 send:

U.S. Postal Mail to:
Cuyahoga County Treasurer
P O Box 94547
Cleveland, OH 44101-4547


Overnight Mail to:
Cuyahoga County Treasurer
2079 East 9th Street
Cleveland, OH 44115

Your envelope MUST be postmarked by the closing date of the tax collection in order to avoid penalties and interest.

In Person:
The Treasury is 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 6:00 p.m. To avoid penalty and interests, payment must be made on or before the closing date.

Key Bank Locations (through August 6th):

During the tax collection, Key Bank will be accepting payments at all their Cuyahoga County branches through August 6, 2020. All payments (check or money order only) must be processed for the entire amount of the tax bill and the customer must provide the original tax bill to process this payment over the counter

Drop Box:
For your convenience, a tax payment drop box is available at the Cuyahoga County Administrative Headquarters, curbside at 900 Prospect Garage, and at the Cuyahoga County Auto Title locations listed below (NOT the BMV). The drop boxes are available during the tax collection. Payments are retrieved and processed, daily.
