When mailing your property tax payment, the Lincoln County Tax Collector uses the official post mark date stamp from the United States Postal Service, to post your payment.
Please Note: The US Postal Service has recently changed first-class and Priority Mail service times. First-class Package Service and Priority Mail were previously 2-3 day service commitments. Both are now 3 to 4 days.
Due to recent changes with USPS (the Salem, OR facility closed), mailings could be subject to re-routing from the original destination and forwarded on to Portland, OR for the official post mark date. For example: If your payment is mailed from your mail box in Newport, OR, it may be re-routed to Portland, OR and post marked at the Portland, OR facility.
Please allow sufficient mail time for your payment to arrive, with a post mark on or before the actual due date ORS 311.505.
To ensure that you receive the postmark by any tax due date, we suggest that you take your mail into the post office and have your envelope hand-stamped by the post office.
When making a payment online at our website the Tax Collector will use the initiation date as the official postmark of your payment.
When paying online through your own banking institution/bill pay, make sure to allow sufficient time for your payment to arrive by the due date.
