Lake County property owners have multiple options for paying their taxes: online, by phone, by mail, using the drop box located outside the Law Enforcement Center, or in person. Please note that there is a processing fee associated with using a credit card, e-check or debit card. This fee is paid to our vendor for the processing. The fee does not come to Lake County. The processing fees are as follows:
- Credit card payments will incur a 2.40% convenience fee on the amount charged, with a minimum fee of $2.00
- E-check payments (draws directly from your checking/savings account) have a flat fee of $1.50
- Debit card payments have a flat fee of $3.95
To pay by phone, call 877-690-3729 (jurisdiction code 3358) and follow the instructions given to you. You’ll need the following information: taxpayer number, parcel ID number, account number, tax year, amount to pay and payment information. Upon successfully entering a payment method, you will be provided with a confirmation number.
Please note: On the Order/Transaction Information screen or for paying by phone, all of the information you need is located on your property tax statement. Please see the sample property tax statement below to see where the information is located.
