Summit County mails new property or real estate tax bills

The Summit County Fiscal Office will begin mailing real estate tax bills Thursday after adjusting property values through the 2020 reappraisal process.

The bills are due Feb. 26, regardless of whether property owners intend to contest the new values. If not paid on time, a 10% late fee will be assessed for all but active duty military.

Property owners can pay online at https://bit.ly/2M8XmKd or by phone by calling 1-800-272-9829 and entering jurisdiction code 4596 when prompted. Small fees, including $1 for e-checks, apply.

Fiscal Officer Kristen Scalise encouraged online or phone payments with the United States Postal Service behind on deliveries. Anyone mailing a check to the Summit County Fiscal Office at 175 S. Main St., Akron, OH 44308 should ensure a postmark by Feb. 26 to avoid the late fee. Payments also can be placed in a secure drop box on the fourth floor of the Ohio Building from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.
