Treasurer-Tax Collector
The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Department operates three divisions - Treasury, Property Tax, and Central Collections. While the activities of each division are unique, the primary purpose of the department as a whole is to collect revenue owed to the County, cities, special districts, school districts, and the court system. The department is committed to providing excellent customer service and assuring effective utilization of the public’s tax dollars through a program of performance measurement and management.
Property Tax Payment Options

Pay by credit card or e-check using the Treasurer-Tax Collector Department's  online payment system or by calling Heartland Payment Systems at 1-844-882-3391 (toll free).

  • E-checks - It is FREE to pay by e-check through the Treasurer-Tax Collector's online payment system. Use this service instead of  your bank's "bill pay" system. 
  • Debit Cards - There is a flat fee of only $3.49 to pay by debit card (and you can pay multiple parcels for one flat fee). Note: This option will not be available after August 31, 2016. For a no-fee option, pay by E-check.
  • Credit Cards - The convenience fee to pay by credit card is 2.25% of the total charged. Note: The fee will be increased to 2.34% after August 31, 2016.

Why is there a convenience fee for debit and credit cards? Here's the answer.

By Mail

Payments by mail must be postmarked on or before the due date listed on the payment stub.  Please make checks payable to the Butte County Tax Collector. Write your assessment number on your check and include your tax bill payment stub, if available.

Exception: Delinquent property taxes with a final due date of June 30th must be received by the Treasurer-Tax Collector's Department on or before that date. 

In Person

The Treasurer-Tax Collector's office is located on the bottom floor of the Butte County Administration building in Oroville. The Property Tax Division accepts cash, checks, and money orders at the front counter and provides a public computer terminal for online payments. During December and April, check and money order payments may be placed in a secured drop box located directly in front of the Treasurer-Tax Collector's office.
