Residents whose school tax bills are paid via escrow accounts should not use this service as the amount due will be deducted from their escrow accounts during the month of September, as in years past.

Residents who choose to use the online bill pay service should note that the company that provides the service charges a one-time transaction fee of $0.50 plus 3 percent of the bill total for credit or debit card payments (minimum $2 fee).
