How and Where do I pay my taxes?
Pay by Mail:
Make sure your envelope is U. S. postmarked on or before the due date. If mailing close to the deadline, we strongly suggest that you have your envelope postmarked at the postal counter rather than dropping it in the box, to be sure it is properly dated. Only payments with a USPS postmark on or before the due date will be accepted as current. Please send the bill stub with your payment to help us process your taxes efficiently.

At the Treasurer's Office, 320 West Main Street, Grangeville, Idaho. The office hours are 8:30-5:00, Monday - Friday, excluding holidays. We accept checks, cashier's checks, money orders and cash. Credit cards are also excepted with a 2.75% convenience fee.

Credit card payment services are provided by a private vendor, and all fees associated with the transaction are paid by the taxpayer. You will receive a confirmation number indicating that your transaction is complete.
Can I make partial payments or get a head start on future years taxes?
Partial payments toward real property delinquent taxes are accepted (any amount, any time) and are applied to tax, costs, interest and late charge in the proportion each bears to the total amount due.
Partial payments can be applied toward current year or future taxes on all property types. Any remaining balance may be paid according to the standard schedules and regulations for property tax collection.
Once any part of a personal property or manufactured home tax becomes delinquent, the unpaid portion of the entire tax shall immediately become due and payable.
What if my payment is late?
A late charge equal to 2% of any unpaid portion of the first half of the tax is added at 5:00 p.m. on the due date. Interest accrues daily, at 1% per month, beginning January 1st of the year following the December 20th first half due date.
When any portion of a manufactured home or personal property tax becomes delinquent, a Warrant of Distraint is issued to the County Sheriff for collection. Full payment of all tax, late charge, warrant fees and interest is required to release the warrant.
