One-Time Property Tax Payments
- CREDIT CARDS: There is a convenience fee on all property tax credit card transactions. The convenience fee is 2.45% of the amount of the property tax payment. The City of Madison is required to collect and remit 100% of the property tax billed amounts to the taxing jurisdictions. Therefore, the fee for using this type of payment method is borne by the user. For a no fee method of payment, see eCheck described below.
- DEBIT CARDS:
Payments made with debit cards have a convenience fee of $3.95.
Since use of a debit card requires that funds are available in your bank account, consider eCheck described below.
WARNING: Cards you may think of as debit cards may be identified by your bank as credit cards for this type of transaction. If the fee listed just prior to your finalizing the transaction is equal to 2.45%, your card will be charged that fee. Fees cannot be refunded.
- CHECKING/SAVINGS ACCOUNT (eCHECK): There is NO FEE for this method. It requires you to enter your checking or savings account information. The amount you designate is then deducted from your bank account. Make sure you indicate whether you want the payment to be deducted from a checking account or a savings account.
