Monthly Payment by Mail or In Person


Paying a large semi-annual real estate tax bill in one lump sum can be difficult for many people.  As long as your taxes are current, you can take advantage of our convenient TIPP plans.  The basic TIPP plan offers the convenience of paying your taxes in advance, by mail or in person, through more manageable monthly payments.

Delinquent Payment Plans

By Ohio law, an owner-occupier of real property (a home or manufactured home) in Lucas County with delinquent real estate taxes may qualify for a delinquent installment payment plan.  By complying with the terms of the payment plan contract, a taxpayer can save the cost of penalties and interest during the plan's duration and also avoid the risk of tax foreclosure.

A delinquent payment plan requires a 20% down payment, and subsequent installments are calculated to simultaneously pay both the ongoing current tax bills and the delinquency within 24 months.*

NOTE: Delinquent payment plans will not be issued during the ten-day period following a real estate tax due date.

The chart below illustrates the Treasurer's Delinquent Payment Plan Eligibility Guidelines.**

*A residual balance may remain due upon the completion of a payment plan, most often the result of a change in the tax bill that occurs after the initial calculation of monthly installments.  Installments are recalculated after twelve (12) months.
