Pay Your Property Tax Bill Online

City of Elkton property tax bills have been mailed and are now ready to be collected by the city. New this year, you can now pay your property tax bill online. Go to the city of Elkton website and find the “Pay Online” icon and follow the “City Payment Portal.” Or, you can click this LINK to go there directly now.

You can choose to register for an account or there is a “One-Time Payment” option where all you need to do is enter the Property Owner Name, Property Address, Bill Number, Tax Year, and the Payment Amount for the bill. You will need all of this information from your tax bill that was mailed to you.

Reminder, if you pay by credit or debit card, there is a convenience fee of 2.75% plus $0.25 added to the payment to cover the credit card company processing fee. If you pay by e-check there is no convenience fee since it is debited directly from your account.

Due Dates Reminder:
The bills will show four different due dates and payment amounts.  The due dates and amounts due are as follows:

Received or postmarked by:
10/31 – Face value – 2% discount
12/31 – Face value
01/31 – Face value + 2% penalty
02/28 – Face value + 10% penalty
Beginning 03/01 – Face value + 10% penalty + 12% interest + $5 advertising fee

Our office recognizes postmarks as evidence of timely payment. Collection dates and penalty amounts are set by ordinance. Our office has no authority to negotiate these matters. However, if one of these dates falls on a weekend or observed holiday and City Hall is closed, we will honor payments without penalty on the following work day.
