Pay Taxes in Our Office

When you visit our office, you can pay your County taxes (or other fees) with cash, check, MasterCard, VISA or debit card.  There is a 3% fee charged for Visa and MasterCard transactions and a $1.00 fee for debit card transactions.

Drop Payments in Our Drop Boxes

There are two drop boxes for your convenience.  One is a blue drive-up box located behind the Administration Building.  It has a sign that says Prince George County Night Depository.  The second one is located at the corner of the building near the entrance to the Treasurer's Office.  Both are checked at 8:30 am daily.  Citizens are encouraged to use these to drop off payments if it is not necessary for you to come inside for assistance.  You may only pay with check if you use a drop box.
