Fees for Online Tax Payment
Our 3rd party payment processor charges these fees directly to the taxpayer. Fees are as follows:
- Credit card 2.5% - minimum of $1.50
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 2021 real estate taxes are certified to the WV State Auditor as of November 1.
The post certification report is broken down into two sections: Suspended and Certified to State.
Suspended properties may be a mineral royalty bill or a property which was sold previously at a tax lien sale and is still pending redemption. Please call the tax office for more information on Suspended tickets.
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 could be subject to final sale by the Auditor as early as the spring of 2023 (sale date TBA). Please contact the Auditor's office after Decemeber 1, 2022 about redemption.

We are aware of a printer's error on 2019 Real Estate tickets. Many have been addressed incorrectly. We are working to resolve this as soon as possible. If you have received a bill that is not yours, you may search the tax records on this site to view your tax tickets.
