Pay your taxes by Auto-Pay

Use the Auto-Pay method to have the Whatcom County Treasurer automatically deduct your tax payment(s) from your checking or savings account (US financial institutions only).

Fill out the application form   provided here and return it to our office.  Then on April 30 and October 31, or the next business day should these dates fall on a weekend or holiday, your tax payment(s) will be made automatically for the amount shown on your tax payment coupon(s).  Or, if you choose to pay the full year, this will be done on April 30.  You must however, complete and return the form by the stated deadlines of March 15 or September 15.

The authorization remains in effect until the Treasurer has received written notification from you, no less than 30 days before the next payment date.  Or, at such time that a payment is refused by your financial institution for any reason (these will incur a returned item fee in the amount currently in effect at the time of return).
