Avoid heavy traffic, increased parking rates, and long lines. The payment site may default to an amount to be paid; if this is not the amount you wish to pay you may delete the number that appears in the screen and insert the amount that you wish to pay. Search for your parcel. Select the "Pay Now" option and follow the step-by-step process for the following:
  • Electronic debit to a checking or savings account (ACH). Payments made using this service are at no cost to the taxpayer.
  • This site is authorized to accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Taxpayers using this service will incur a service charge of 2.49% of the total taxes paid. The fee is paid to the service provider, not the Wayne County Treasurer.
