Your tax roll number is your account num-ber. Should you own multiple properties, you may use your owner number (located on bottom portion of tax notice) as your account number or may designate payment to each tax roll number. Allow 2-3 business days for processing.
Contact your financial institution for information and details on how to set up your payment. Please retain all confirmation numbers and documentation through telephone or internet banking and allow 2-3 business days for processing.
