(Boise, ID) - The Ada County Treasurer’s Office would like to remind property owners that 2011 property tax payments are due on or before Tuesday, December 20, 2011.
Each year, tax payments are due on December 20th, or the first business day following when the 20th falls on a weekend. Homeowners can either pay in full, or may pay the first half of their taxes by December 20th, and the second half by June 20th of the following year, with no interest or late charges.
Tax payments must be made by 5:00 p.m. on December 20th, and may be made via several convenient methods:
· Pay in person: The Ada County Treasurer’s Office is located on the first floor in the Ada County Courthouse, 200 W. Front St., Boise, and is open Monday thru Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Treasurer’s Office accepts checks, cash, money orders, and cashier’s checks, when paying in person. You may park for free in the lot east of the Courthouse for up to one hour.
· Pay by credit card, debit card or e-check: Call 1-800-272-9829 to pay over the phone by credit card or visit the Official Payments website at www.officialpayments.com to pay online by credit card or e-check. The Ada County jurisdiction code is 2212.
A 2.4% convenience fee will be charged by Official Payments for credit and debit card transactions. A $5.00 fee is charged for e-check transactions. The service provider collects the convenience fee to cover transaction and service charges. Ada County does not receive any portion of the fee.
· Mail your payment: Payments can be sent via U.S. Mail to – Ada County Treasurer, P.O. Box 2868, Boise, ID 83701. Payments MUST be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before December 20th to avoid late charges.
