It's that time of year again! Property tax deadlines are nearing. While deferral options are available in some communities due to COVID-19, most rural property tax due dates have not changed. Property taxes are due July 2, 2020.
Paying your property taxes could look a little different this year. Some of the branches in your area might be temporarily closed or have limited hours. And, some municipalities may have offices that are by appointment only or completely closed. The easiest and fastest way to pay your property taxes this year is with online or mobile banking.
As your property tax notice reaches your mailbox, here's a reminder of all convenient ways you can pay your bill without needing to visit a physical location.
Fast and Convenient Ways to Pay Your Property Tax
How to Pay Bills Online
Paying your property taxes is easy with online and mobile banking. Both these options eliminate time spent waiting on the phone or in a line-up. If you haven’t already made the switch, we’re here to help you get started with online and mobile banking.
All you need to do once you’re set up is follow these three simple steps to add your municipality as a payee and pay your bill:
- STEP 1: Sign up or login to online banking
Login to online banking with your branch name, member number and access code (PAC/password).
- STEP 2 - Add a new payee
We’ve made it easy for you to add a payee through our online banking platform. Just navigate to Payments and click on Add Payee under the Pay Bills header.
Under this page you can manually search for a payee or browse by type of payee. Once you have found the correct payee, click on its name and enter your account number that you have for that organization. After entering your number, click submit and confirm this payee addition.
- STEP 3 - Make a payment
After navigating back to the Pay Bills page, select your payee and fill out the rest of your payment information when prompted. This will include which account you’re paying from, when you want to make the payment, and how much it is for. Once everything appears in order, click confirm and you’re all done! Remember that any bills paid from your Simply Free Account® are always free of charge!
