If taxpayers do not receive a tax bill in the mail, Treasurer Burke recommends calling his office at 330.725.9748 or accessing the Treasurer’s website (not the Auditor’s Website) at www.medinacountytreasurer.com to look up their tax bill.

Taxpayers can also make a payment online and then print a receipt. Treasurer Burke noted. “Online tax payments are easy, safe, fast and convenient and we provide a variety of online payment options.” Taxpayers can pay by electronic check ($1.50 fee), credit card or PayPal account (2.5% fee). The vendor fees charged for each of these options are paid directly to the vendors. Medina County does not receive any part of the fees.
You may also pay by phone with Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit cards toll-free at 1.888.607.8389 (2.5% fee).
