NEW - Online Business Tax Renewal Payment option

We are pleased to announce that we have implemented a new option for paying Business Tax renewal bills, allowing you to avoid the trouble of mailing or dropping off a check each year. Save a stamp or a visit to our office. Simply go to:

All you need is an email address, a credit card, your Business Account Number and a six-digit Renewal Code. The account number and renewal code may be found on the front of the bill in the box at the top and also on the reverse side of the bill.

 Once you have logged in you may view the charges, pay your current bill and make changes to your mailing address, phone number and email.

Payments may be made by credit card. ACH payments or electronic checks are not accepted.
