The Douglas County Tax Collection Office issued a reminder this week that the third trimester tax payment must be received or postmarked no later than May 15 in order to avoid interest and penalties.
Payments may be made in person at the Douglas County Tax Collection Office, Room 205, Douglas County Courthouse, 1036 SE Douglas Ave., Roseburg. The tax office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Payments may be made online at co.douglas.or.us with a credit card, debit card or e-check. There is a 2.49% transaction fee for credit cards, $3.95 for debit cards and $3 for e-checks.
A public computer with internet access is located in the tax collection office lobby, allowing taxpayers to make their online payment.
The Reedsport branch of Umpqua Bank will no longer accept property tax payments.
Because mail is often transported out of town before being postmarked, it's important to either mail early or take the payment envelope into the Post Office to receive a hand stamped local postmark.
