Medina County Treasurer John Burke has announced that 80,584 first half 2022 property tax bills have been mailed to county property owners. The official payment due date for these tax bills is February 10, 2023. Treasurer Burke noted that the total amount of real estate taxes billed for the full year is $392,954,351 as compared to last year’s total of $354,316,439. This year’s billed real estate taxes were based on new values placed on properties by the County Auditor as part of his triennial reappraisal update.
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. Just click “Search and Pay Taxes” in the left column to find the proper tax bill amount. Taxpayers can then print an official tax bill for paying by mail or in person. Taxpayers can also make 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 these options are paid directly to the vendors. Medina County does not receive any part of the fees.
In addition, through our website, PayPal Credit offers a “bill me later” option, which allows payment over 6 months with no interest charged. “We have seen some taxpayers take advantage of this opportunity to gain extra time to pay. This option allows them to meet the due date and avoid a 10% late payment charge,” said Treasurer Burke. More information is available on the PayPal website. This option is subject to prior credit approval. Vendor charges of 2.5% apply.
You may also pay by phone with Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit cards toll-free at 1.888.607.8389 (2.5% fee).
