EZ Pay (Automatic Debit)
Payments are automatically deducted monthly or on the due date from you bank account as you direct. Available for personal property and real estate taxes as well as the bimonthly utility fees. For more information or to print an enrollment form, visit the EZ Pay page.
If you are experiencing financial difficulty and are unable to pay your taxes in full, the Treasurer's office will assist you with payment arrangements. Making arrangements with us will not stop penalties and interest from accruing, but it may prevent us from pursuing other collection action including advising DMV to freeze your vehicle registration and incurring the additional fees associated with the action.
Failure to Pay
It is the responsibility of our office to collect all amounts due to the City of Poquoson. We will pursue collection of unpaid taxes and fees by means available to us. To collect unpaid taxes we will:
- Use DMV stops (additional $35 for administrative and DMV fees)
- Use debt set off, which is collecting thru state tax refunds (additional $20 fee for administrative fees)
- Seek judgments to sustain the tax (additional $32 for administrative and warrant fees)
- Use wage liens (additional $20 administrative fee)
- Assign unpaid bulk item, landscaping, and weeds fees to your real estate account and they will be paid before associated real estate taxes (additional charges vary)
