Tax Payment Options
COVID-19 UpdateOur lobbies will be open to the public starting February 16 but to limit the spread of COVID-19, we are encouraging the public to use the alternate options of phone, e-mail, US Postal Service, online or drop box.
There are four different options for paying your property taxes:
- You can mail in your payment,
- Come in to the county to pay in person
- Pay over the phone through the automated telephone service, or
- Pay online via the internet.
Assessment & Taxation - Property Tax Prepayments
Washington County is unable to accept any prepayments on taxes for the 2020/2021 tax year. Per Oregon Revised Statutes, pre-collection of funds may not be allowed, unless under specific situations such as omitted property which adds taxes to the roll; prepayment to the Oregon Department of Revenue for senior deferral balances; partition and plats of parcels or making a subdivision; and other situations outlined in ORS 311.370. According to the Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR 150-311-0260) unless authorized by law, no prepayments of property taxes which have not been certified by a taxing district, shall be collected or accepted.
