Tax Bill Payment Options

** Cumberland County Tax Administration is transitioning to a new tax software system. The new software system will allow increased access to information and be more user friendly. We expect minimal inconvenience during the transition; however, wait times in the office or on the phone may be longer than usual. Making payments as early as possible will assist in this transition. Thank you for your understanding as we move forward to serving you better. **

NOTE: The 2020 Tax Bills are tentatively scheduled to be mailed by September 15, 2020.

Upon receiving your 2020 property tax bill, you may elect to make partial payments in any amount and at any interval provided the taxes are paid in full before becoming delinquent. You may also set up a formal Payment Plan to pay your tax bill in regular installment payments.

The deadline to pay 2020 property taxes will be Tuesday, January 5, 2021.

Taxes paid on or after January 6, 2021 are subject to interest charges. January interest is 2% thereafter interest accrues at the rate of 3/4% on the first of every month.
