MEDINA COUNTY, OHIO – Medina County Treasurer John Burke has announced that 84,082 first half 2018 property tax bills were mailed the week of January 14th to county property owners. The official payment due date for these tax bills is February 8, 2019. Treasurer Burke noted that the total amount of first half real estate taxes billed is $133,943,672, with the total for the year to be $271,704,207.
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.
“A variety of easy, fast and convenient online payment options are available through our secure website and mobile connection,” notes Treasurer Burke. Taxpayers can pay by ACH electronic check, credit card or PayPal account. 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.
In addition, PayPal Credit offers a “bill me later” option, which allows payment over 6 months with no interest charged. “We have seen many taxpayers take advantage of this opportunity to gain extra time to pay. They 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 apply.
