Pay Online

You may also pay online using your E-check, Visa or MasterCard debit/credit card.

E-check payments will require the bank routing number and your bank account number from the bottom of your check, as well as your PIN from the upper right corner of your tax bill. You may call our customer service line 816-881-3232 for PIN if you do not have your bill in hand at the time of online payment. There is a transaction fee of $0.40 for using this payment option which is the exact cost the County pays for this service. Jackson County does not profit from these fees. 

Visa or MasterCard debit/credit card payments will require the 3 digit security code located on the back side of your card. There is a transaction fee of 2.395% of the total tax bill that is charged to each debit/credit card transaction processed online. This transaction fee is charged and retained by the payment processing company to use the company's services. Jackson County does not receive any of these transaction fees.
