Property tax statements (tax bills) will be mailed on or before October 25th each year. All property owners receive a tax statement. If you do not receive a tax statement by November 1st, please notify the Assessment and Taxation office at 503-842-3400.
If you receive a green statement, it means that the property owner is responsible for paying the tax. If your tax statement is yellow, it means our records indicate a mortgage company or Oregon Department of Revenue, has requested to pay your taxes. If you have recently refinanced, the mortgage company may not have notified us of the change. Please contact your mortgage company, if you have any questions regarding who should pay your property tax. REMEMBER, property owners are ultimately responsible for paying their property taxes.
The total tax amount is indicated on the front of the tax statement. Payment "Instructions and Schedules" are clearly printed on the back of the statement. The upper portion of the tax statement should be kept for your records.

CONSUMER ONLINE BANKING SERVICES AND YOUR TAXES
Online banking has made life a lot easier for many individuals. Consumers who use their bank's services are able to schedule payments and send checks directly from their online banking interface. Many find it convenient to use the online banking tools, and save time and postage as well.
If you plan to utilize this type of payment option, please be sure to note how long your banking service needs to cut and mail a check. Most bill payment check services do not use a conventional postmark when mailing payments, and often postdate the checks fro the date they think it will arrive at its destination. Some checks are held for a few days and mailed later with checks for other customers whose payments may be going to the same destination.
If this is your preferred method of payment, please initiate the payment early enough to reach our office by the deadline. Payments postmarked after the due date, or received after the due date without a postmark will not be eligible for the discount.
Checks should be made PAYABLE TO: Tillamook County Tax Collector
