Receipt will be mailed back to address on tax bill unless otherwise stated.
U.S. Mail: Payments received by U.S. Mail are deemed paid by postmark date. All payments received after December 31 in the year they were due must include penalties and interest as set out in Missouri statutes. Paid receipt will be mailed back. If mailing a payment between December 20-31, it may take up to 10 business days for processing due to the high volume of mail received at that time. It is recommended that you verify hours for the post office on Dec. 31 if mailing that day. New this year, a convenient mailing label was enclosed with your statement. Just peel it off, affix to any envelope, and add correct postage.

No fee is charged or retained by the Collector, her office or Johnson County.

Fees by the processing company are set as follows: $2.75 flat fee per transaction for eChecks, $3.95 flat fee for Visa Signature Personal Debit Card and 3.0% of payment amount for all Credit and non-Visa Debit Cards.
