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, via your bank or credit union, or through the mail.
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.
Pay by Phone - 1-833-610-5715 - Point and Pay’s automated phone system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can pay with an electronic check, credit and debit card. Convenience fees apply.
Personal Teller Option - Call 1-877-495-2729 to use Point and Pay's Personal Teller Option and make your payment with a live teller. Personal Tellers are available from 8 am to 11 pm EST, Monday through Friday. A $5.00 convenience fee will be charged in addition to the payment fee.
Note: Electronic and phone payments must be electronically delivered by 11:59 pm on the due date to be considered timely.
24-hour Payment Drop Box
A payment drop box is available at the Multnomah Building 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, OR 97214. Checks only, no cash! Items placed in the drop box will be processed the next business day.
Paying by Mail
Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before the payment due date. Make checks payable to Multnomah County Tax Collector.
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.
