Make a Payment
You may mail your payment to our office directly. Mail must be postmarked by the established due date in order to avoid a late payment penalty. Our mailing address:
Treasurer of Lucas County
One Government Center, Suite 500
Toledo, Ohio 43604
The banks can only accept the exact amount of the bill (with the original bill stub) and only during the months of January* and July. Any tax payments made after the due date must be made directly to our office.
For your convenience, real estate tax bills can be paid at the following locations:
Genoa Banking Center
- State Bank and Trust
- First Federal Bank
Key Bank, PNC, and Fifth Third Bank will no longer accept payments at any of their branches.
*Due to the recent change of the first half due date, participating banks will accept payments through the first Wednesday in February.
If your parcel has been selected for the Tax Lien sale, you can not process your payment through this system. Please contact the Lucas County Treasurer's Office at (419) 213-4055. All payments processed through this system will be returned to you and considered unpaid.
