NEW Self-service Kiosk allows you to pay your property taxes without having to go to the courthouse.

Customers can locate their property taxes by searching for their bill by name, address, or bill number. Once selected, the customer can select the record(s) and submit their payment via credit or debit card. A receipt is printed at the end of the transaction. As is the case with using a credit or debit card to make payments at the Trustee’s Office, the kiosk charges the same processing fee for payments made using a credit or debit card through the kiosk system. The kiosk is located inside the Redi-Mart Supermarket located at 5110 US-19E in Hampton.
