Second half 2012 real estate tax bills due on July 26th

E-mail Print

Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE would like to remind property owners that second half 2012 real estate taxes are due on Friday, July 26, 2013, with the exception of military personnel. Property taxes are deferred for military reservists who are on active duty.

Applications can be obtained by calling 330-643-2641 or visiting our Military Assistance.

There are several convenient ways for taxpayers to make payment:

  1. In person: Payments can be made in-person at the Summit County Fiscal Office, Treasurers Division, 3rd floor of the Ohio Building, 175 S. Main St., Akron 44308. Our office hours are 7:30am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
  2. By mail: Mailed payments must be U.S. postmarked by July 26, 2013 to avoid the statutory 10% penalty for late payment. A private meter is not valid for establishing the date of payment.
  3. At banks who participate in the Regional Tax Collection System: A list of participating banks is included on your tax bill. Checks must be payable to the banking institution.
  4. Online or by phone: Tax bills can be paid online or by phone through a secure payment service provided by Official Payments Corporation. Taxpayers will need their parcel number on-hand. A nominal service fee will be charged by Official Payments Corporation. To pay taxes online or by phone, go to On-Line Tax Payments.
  5. At a MoneyGram location: In person cash payments can be made through MoneyGram, a new payment service offered at 35,000 locations nationwide. MoneyGram provides guaranteed same-day transactions. A nominal service fee will be charged by Official Payments Corporation. To locate a MoneyGram center, visit or call 1-800-MoneyGram.

The Tax Installment Program (TIP) will be available again this year. Homeowners who pay their real estate taxes directly to the Fiscal Office, but cannot pay the full second half amount due can avoid late payment penalties by enrolling in the TIP. To be eligible all taxes and assessments must be current. The deadline to sign up is July 26, 2013, also the last day to pay second half 2012 real estate taxes. Call 330-643-2869 for more information.

The Fiscal Office continues to offer various plans to assist in the payment of delinquent taxes. Any taxpayer who is delinquent should call 330-643-2600.

Ohio law states that it is the responsibility of the property owner to obtain and pay their tax bill on time.
