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).
11-12-15 - The Treasurer-Tax Collector's Department has switched to a new electronic payment processing vendor, Heartland Payment Systems, to offer FREE e-check processing and reduced convenience fees for debit and credit card transactions. Here is a summary of the changes:
- E-checks - It is now 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).
- Credit Cards - The convenience fee to pay by credit cards has been reduced from 2.5% to 2.25% of the total charged.
Why is there still a convenience fee for debit and credit cards? Here's the answer.
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.
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.
