Lincoln County banks will accept tax payments until November 15th for the current year tax. If you owe delinquent taxes, payment must be made by mail or at the Tax Office.

Banks accepting property tax payments until November 15th
Columbia Bank Bank of the West
Umpqua Bank Bank of America

When paying at a local bank, you must have your statement or the lower portion of your statement. It must be a GREEN statement and not yellow.

A YELLOW statement indicates a mortgage company or the Oregon Department of Revenue Senior/Disabled Program has requested the tax statement.

If you have recently purchased or refinanced, the mortgage company may not have notified us of the change. The property owner is responsible for making sure that property taxes are paid. If you have any questions as to who should pay the taxes please contact your mortgage company.
