Credit Card/Debit Card Service Fees

The Treasurer-Tax Collector accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card for payment of taxes. There is a service fee equal to 2.29% of your tax amount (with a minimum charge of $1.95) that will be charged in addition to the property tax amount due for all credit cards. If you choose to pay by debit card in person only in our office, a flat fee of $2.95 will be charged. These service fees are assessed by the credit card associations and do not go to the County of Orange.

Please see the sample computation below to determine the convenience fee for your payment.   
For example, if your tax amount is $500.00, the total charge to your credit card is computed as follows:

$500.00
    Tax Amount
+
$11.45
    2.29% Convenience Fee= $500.00 X .0229

 
=
$511.45
    Total Amount to Pay

There is no charge to pay by eCheck!
