Real Estate/Personal Property Questions

When should I receive my tax bill?
Tax payers should receive their real estate and personal property tax statements for the current year by the middle part of December.
What should I do if I don't receive a tax bill?
Please contact the Lancaster County Treasurer's Office at (402) 441-7425 so we can send a duplicate statement and verify billing information. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the obligation to pay taxes and if delinquent, applicable interest, penalties and fees.

Please call the Lancaster County Assessor/Register of Deeds at (402) 441-7463 or email

Can I pay my taxes online with a Credit or Debit Card?
Yes. There is a 2.35% service fee when using American Express, Discover Card, MasterCard, or Visa credit cards. If you pay with a debit card there is a $2.00 minimum fee.
Why do I have to pay a service fee?
The Lancaster County Treasurer's Office uses the option of credit card payments as an optional service to the taxpayer. We cannot adjust the taxes to include the fee, therefore the fee must be charged separately. The fee is remitted to a third party Vendor, not Lancaster County.
Can I pay by e-check or e-savings?
Yes. There is a $1.00 e-processing fee when using e-check or e-savings.
Can I pay for more than more Parcel at a time online?
Yes. Starting in August 2018 you can now utilize a shopping cart (My Cart) and add mulitple Parcels to the cart and checkout. This is a convenient way to pay if you have mulitple parcels as it saves time and you will only incur service fees for the total payment rather than for each parcel.
Can I make partial payments on my taxes?
No. A taxpayer can only make a half or full payment.
