Interest on late payments

Interest will be charged on any payment made after the installment due date for the schedule you choose. The rate of interest is determined by Oregon statute, which is 16% annually or 1.333% monthly until paid. If property taxes are not paid on time, interest accrues on the 16th of each month.

Payments made with electronic bill pay services must be received in our office by the due date. Please request your payment in advance with your bill pay provider.

Payments made with checks that are returned by the bank are not eligible for any discount.

Delinquent taxes and lien dates

Real property tax is delinquent if not paid by May 15. Foreclosure proceedings on real property begin when taxes have been delinquent for 3 years. Real property tax accounts with an unpaid balance for any tax year marked with an (*) on the front of your tax statement are subject to foreclosure if not paid on or before May 15. Property tax payments must be credited to the earliest year that taxes are due. For example, if you owe taxes for 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, any payment made will be first applied to 2020 and so forth.

Prepayment of property taxes

Unless authorized by law, no prepayments of property taxes that have not been certified by a taxing district shall be collected or accepted (OAR 150-311-0260). Examples of law allowing prepayment of taxes include recording a subdivision, creating a condominium or moving a manufactured home.
