Tax Payment Methods

Payments in person at both Collection Department Offices

In addition to accepting cash, personal check, cashier's check, bank draft and money orders (made payable to: Jackson County Collector); we also accept debit and credit card payments at both Collection Department Offices.  We can accept Visa and MasterCard debit cards, as well as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards at the cashier windows.  There are transaction fees charged and retained by the payment processing company to use the company's services. Jackson County does not receive any of these transaction fees.
