Owe Back Taxes? Get on a Payment Plan by Friday to Avoid Extra Charges!

Posted on

Cuyahoga County homeowners have until December 1 to sign up for a payment plan  


CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH – The Cuyahoga County Treasurer’s Office encourages residents to stay current on property taxes and, if they are behind on payments, to sign up for the County’s Delinquent Tax Payment Plan to avoid incurring extra costs by Friday, December 1, 2023.


If you are having trouble making a payment, schedule an appointment with the Treasury - Tax Services Department by calling 216-443-7400 Monday – Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, or email the office for assistance.


“As your County Treasurer, my goal is to ensure taxpayers have the information and resources they need to become current on their property taxes and to help them stay current going forward,” said Cuyahoga County Treasurer Brad Cromes, who was appointed to that role by County Executive Chris Ronayne in early November.


Taxpayers who are not current on their taxes by December 1 will be assessed a 3% interest charge, and additional penalties will be assessed if payments are received after the close of the tax collection in February 2024.

Payment plans are available for homeowners who live in their own homes. Owners of commercial, industrial, and non-owner-occupied residential properties (rental properties) may also be eligible for payment plans and are encouraged to inquire.


The Treasurer’s Office encourages all property owners to enroll in the EasyPay program, which automatically deducts property tax payments via bank transfer at the owner’s choice of monthly, bi-annually, or annually.


“EasyPay helps taxpayers stay current by automating the payment process and offers the flexibility to break payments into more manageable installments,” adds Cromes.


“It’s a great tool and an option we think many taxpayers will find helpful.”
