How to Pay My Taxes
We accept cash, check, money order, credit and debit cards.
Paying Taxes By Mail
Please mail and tear off the small portion of your tax bill along with your check or money order. Make the check or money order payable to "Washington County Treasurer". Your envelope must be postmarked by the due date listed on your tax bill to avoid paying a penalty.
If you would like a paid receipt please enclose the entire bill along with a stamped, self addressed envelope and mail this information in the envelope provided in your tax bill. If you did not receive a printed envelope with your tax bill please mail to the following:
Tammy L. Bates, Treasurer
