Paying Property Taxes
The Treasurer's office accepts payments of cash, check, or credit card (fee applies) in the office. Payments may also be sent by mail to 179 North Main Street, Room 201, Logan, UT 84321 for past and present years. As a convenience, you may also pay your current year's taxes online or via telephone through Forte Payment Systems by using your parcel number.
Taxes Become Delinquent After November 30, 2016
Payments received after NOVEMBER 30, 2016 are subject to a per parcel penalty of 2.5% or $10, whichever is greater. If delinquent taxes and this penalty are paid on or before January 31, 2017 this penalty will be reduced to the greater of 1% or $10. Otherwise, interest will be charged starting from January 1, 2017 at the rate defined by Utah State Statute 59-2-1331 (currently at 7%).
In the information box on your tax notice, there may be a sentence indicating that your property tax notice has been sent to your mortgage company. If this is the case, it is your responsbility to verify with your mortgage company that these property taxes have been paid. Example
There may also be a different sentence in the same section indicating that prior year taxes remain unpaid for this parcel. Prior year taxes cannot be paid online. Please call or visit our office to make payments for delinquent taxes from prior years. Example
