Credit card payments for property taxes can be made online at:

http://www.paytaxes.us/il_marion

E-Checks, American Express, MasterCard, Discover, Visa and debit cards are all accepted.  Please be aware that the service provider for credit cards AND debit cards charge a convenience fee of 2.25% on the amount of taxes being paid plus a transaction fee of $1.50 per transaction. E-checks will be charged a flat fee of $2.00. No portion of this fee of paid to Marion County.  The Taxpayer is responsible for all convenience fees and parcel verification.

We use Autoagent Services, Inc. to accept credit card payments. We are not required to accept payment by credit card but offer this service as a benefit to taxpayers.  In accordance with the Local Governments Acceptance of Credit Cards Act, a convenience fee is paid by the cardholder to wholly offset the fee charged by the service provider.

In a retail store, the merchant pays a percentage fee to the credit card company every time a customer uses a credit card.  When you purchase an item, the fee is already built in to the selling price, it is not a cost you see.  Because we are a government entity, we cannot take the percentage discount to pay that fee.  By law, we must collect the entire amount of tax due and distribute that money to the taxing bodies.  Thus, the fee is charged as a separate item to the cardholder.

The Treasurer’s secure drop box is located on the West side entrance of the Marion County Courthouse at 100 East Main Street Salem Illinois 62881.  These payments will be checked daily.  Any payments made after 4:30p will be posted to the next business day.
