Fees for Online Tax Payment
Our 3rd party payment processor charges these fees directly to the taxpayer. Fees are as follows:

Debit card $3.95 fee up to $500.00 or 2.5% over $500.00
With procedure changes resulting from WV Senate Bill 552, tax liens for delinquent 2022 real estate taxes are certified to the WV State Auditor as of November 1.
Liens that were Certified to the State should be redeemed through the WV State Auditor's office. Please note that there is a shorter redemption period than in the past. Properties Certified to the State will be subject to sale by the Auditor in the spring/summer of 2024 at the Brooke County Courthouse. Please contact the Auditor's office after Decemeber 1, 2023 about redemption.
