Real Estate Taxes

DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK, THE TREASURER'S STAFF IS WORKING IN THE OFFICE AND REMOTELY. COUNTY BUILDINGS ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.  

THE LAST DAY TO PAY REAL ESTATE TAXES AT THE 2% DISCOUNT IS MARCH 31, 2020. AN EXTENSION HAS NOT BEEN GRANTED. POSTMARKS WILL BE HONORED.

YOU MAY PAY YOUR REAL ESTATE TAXES ONLINE AT WWW.DAUPHINCOUNTY.ORG/PAYMENTS. PAYMENTS MADE ONLINE WILL RECEIVE IMMEDIATE CREDIT AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A RECEIPT VIA EMAIL. AT THIS TIME, THIS IS THE SAFEST AND FASTEST WAY TO MAKE YOUR PAYMENT. IF YOU ARE PAYING FOR MULTIPLE PROPERTIES TITLED IN THE SAME NAME, PLEASE ENTER YOUR LAST AND FIRST NAME IN THE SEARCH FIELD TO COMBINE ALL PROPERTIES INTO ONE "SHOPPING CART." THIS WILL INCUR ONLY ONE TRANSACTION FEE.

YOU MAY CHECK THE STATUS OF YOUR TAX PAYMENT AT WWW.DAUPHINPROPERTYINFO.ORG. THERE MAY BE A LONGER PROCESSING TIME THAN NORMAL.  WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

OTHER QUESTIONS MAY BE DIRECTED TO TREASURER@DAUPHINC.ORG

PLEASE STAY SAFE!
