Property tax payments are due November 16, 2020. Oregon state law establishes the property tax payment deadlines and requires interest to be charged on properties with delinquent tax amounts. Multnomah County does not have the authority to waive interest charges as a result of late property tax payments, and the Oregon State Legislature has not, at this time, extended the property tax deadline.
To protect the health and safety of the Multnomah County community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend making your 2020 property tax payment online, with one of our payment drop boxes, via your bank or credit union, or through the mail.
If you must make an in-person tax payment, DART offices will be open October 15th through November 18th to accept payments on a limited basis. No other services will be provided.
Please be advised that:
- Masks are required for service.
- Hours for payments are 8:30 am to 4 pm.
- Physical distancing measures will be implemented.
- Reduced staff will be on site. Expect long wait times.
Multnomah County has partnered with a new, trusted payment vendor, Point and Pay, to make paying online by electronic check, credit or debit card and over the phone quicker and more convenient.
Electronic and Phone Options:
Electronic Check - Safest, most convenient option. Cheaper than buying a stamp!
Online with a Debit or Credit Card - Convenience fees apply. American Express not accepted.
Online through your Bank or Credit Union - Check with your bank or credit union to find out if they provide online bill pay services for their customers. Allow adequate processing time for this service; set up payment early as it must be received by the due date.

Note: Postal delays may cause issues with your postmark. Consider using our electronic or dropbox options.
Property tax statements are mailed before October 25 each year. Payments are due November 15. If the 15th falls on the weekend, payment is due the next business day. You can pay in up to 3 installments due in November, February and May.
See the Property tax payment FAQs for more information including due dates, discounts, and interest.
Your mortgage company may be responsible for making your tax payment. If your property tax bill is yellow, it means a mortgage company or senior/disabled citizen deferral program has requested tax information to pay your tax bill. Check with your mortgage company or the senior/disabled citizen deferral program if you have questions.
