Automatic Property Tax debited Payment Process
Use the AUTOPAY method to have the Jefferson County Treasurer automatically deduct your tax payment(s) from your checking or savings account (US financial institutions only).

Fill out the application form

The authorization remains in effect until the Treasurer has received written notification from you, no less than 30 days before the next payment date.  Or, at such time that a payment is refused by your financial institution for any reason (this will incur a $30.00 returned item fee or the amount currently in effect at the time of return).
