If you cannot use any of the EFT payment methods, or make promised payments by EFT due to a hardship, you must complete an EFT Waiver Request form at least 30 days before your payment due date. The waiver is granted at the discretion of the Commissioner of Finance based on many factors, including the nature of the hardship and the length of time requested. If the waiver is granted, you will not have to pay using EFT; however, you must still pay your property taxes by mail or by visiting a Finance Business Center.
