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.
About Convenience Fees

If you pay your taxes by credit card, debit card or e-check, the company that processes the electronic payments on our behalf will charge the following convenience fees:

  • Credit and debit card transactions - 2.5% of the total taxes
  • E-checks - $3.00 flat fee per transaction of up to ten parcels

Every time you use a credit or debit card, the company processing the payment charges a fee for their service. In the private sector, merchants typically absorb the fee as a cost of doing business. However,  like most government agencies, the Treasurer-Tax Collector's department determined it would be cost prohibitive to cover the processing fee for electronic payments. To offer the service free of charge to the taxpayer, it would cost the County nearly $1 million in processing fees that would not be offset by reduced staffing costs. Currently, the fees are paid by the taxpayer and go directly to the credit card processing company. Butte County does not retain any portion of the convenience fee.
