Real Estate Tax Bills
Oneida County requires that the tax bill be mailed directly to the property owner. Please provide your mortgage company with a copy of your bill if needed, or direct them to our website to view.
If you do not receive your tax bill, it is up to the property owner to determine the amount and to pay property taxes timely. Failure to receive a tax bill does not take away the responsibility to pay taxes timely per State Statute 74.07(6)
Real Property tax bills are issued by the third Monday in December and are due in part or full by January 31st each year to the Local Municipal Treasurer, please see County Directory for Town/City Treasurers contact information. Taxes are considered delinquent if payment is not postmarked by January 31st and received within 5 business days following January 31st. Delinquent taxes are payable to Oneida County. Interest and penalty accrues at the rate of 1.5 percent per month until the bill is paid. Delinquent Notices are mailed twice, once in March and once in September, and Final Notices before Tax Foreclosures are mailed on June 1st for taxes 4 years delinquent.
Postponed 2nd installment taxes are for owners who paid their first installment to local municipality by January 31st. Postponed 2nd installment taxes are paid to Oneida County Treasurer between Feb 1st and July 31st. Taxes are considered delinquent with penalty and interest accruing as of February 1st if the second installment is not postmarked by July 31st and received within 5 business days of July 31st.
Per State Statute 74.11 (12) Treasurers must apply payments in the following order if a partial payment is received:
- Personal Property Tax
- Delinquent Utility Charges
- Special Charges
- Special Assessments
- Special Taxes
- Real Property Taxes
Payment on Split Parcels
If a property is split during a year, there will be only one tax bill. It will show the assessment for the property as a whole as of January 1st. To have your portion of the tax bill split out you will need to write or email your local treasurer with your request. They will contact the assessor for values of each part of the split tax parcel. They can then manually write a tax bill for each party’s portion. These bills must add up to the total tax bill and if one party does not pay their portion of the bill the taxes will show delinquent. You must do this as early as possible because the tax bill will be considered delinquent if not paid timely. You can contact the local treasurer before tax bills are generated so they have the information ready as soon as they have the printed tax bill. You can find your local treasurer in the County Directory.
First installments or full payment must be made to the Local Municipal Treasurer. Each town determines what payment options they will have available. Please see County Directory for their contact information.
Postponed 2nd installment or delinquent payments are collected by Oneida County Treasurer. You can pay your taxes online or by calling Point and Pay at 1-888-891-6064 option 1. Pay by mail or in person to the Oneida County Treasurer. Please note however, our online process is closed during the Local Municipalities collection period from November 1st to Feb 1st.
If paying online or using the self-service telephone system, you will pay a convenience fee. The amount of the fee is determined by the amount and type of payment chosen.
For Credit or Debit cards the fee is a percentage of the amount charged, and electronic checks are a set dollar rate. The Point and Pay convenience fee covers costs associated with electronic transactions. Your payment will be applied to your outstanding taxes on the 3rd business day following your payment. However, the date of payment will be considered the postmark date.
The charge for returned payments is $20 per payment. Tax payment will be deleted and penalty and interest charges will accrue if payment is made outside the postponed tax period. If a payment is returned we will only accept payment by cash, cashier’s check or money order to replace payment and pay returned check fee.
Interest and Penalty Charges:
Interest of 1% and penalty of .5% will be charged starting on February 1st following the due date of January 31st if at least the first installment is not paid to the municipality. 1.5% is charged on the first of the month on the unpaid balance and stays the same throughout the month. Partial payments are pro-rated to pay a percentage on taxes, penalty and interest. If at least the first installment is not paid by January 31st then the entire tax bill becomes due and delinquent immediately. You also lose the option of paying in installments without the penalty and interest charges. The County Treasurer will accept partial payments but penalty and interest will keep accruing at a rate of 1.5% per month on the unpaid delinquent tax balance until it is paid in full.
If the 2nd postpone installment payment is not paid by the due date interest and penalty is charged retroactive to February 1st.
Descriptions of Other Fees-
Returned payment fees will be $20 per payment. This must be paid in cash, cashier’s check or money order. We will not accept a personal check to replace payment or pay fee.

Payment must be made in certified funds such as cash, cashier’s check or money order. This fee will be deducted from the payment before funds are applied to the outstanding taxes.
Environmental fee – if a property is in the In Rem foreclosure process on June 1st an environmental assessment will be performed and charged to the property. This fee will be deducted from the payment before funds are applied to the outstanding taxes and must be made by certified funds.
