Taxes are different than other purchases - those who use credit or debit, pay the processing fee.
It is important that funds are available before processing a payment.
All fees are the same for payments made online, by phone, or in person. Payments made after November 30th will have penalty as shown on the back of your tax notice and per state statute 59-2-1331.

Taxes Become Delinquent After November 30 Each Year
Payments received after NOVEMBER 30 (or the first business day after the 30th if November 30th falls on a weekend) are subject to a per parcel penalty of 2.5% or $10, whichever is greater. If delinquent taxes and the penalty are paid on or before January 31 the penalty will be reduced to the greater of 1% or $10. Interest will be charged starting from January 1 for all delinquent amounts at the rate defined by Utah State Statute 59-2-1331 (2018 rate is 8.00%. This interest is 600 basis points [6%] above the Federal Discount Rate on January 1st following the delinquency date).
In the information box on your tax notice, there may be a sentence indicating that your property tax notice has been sent to your mortgage company. If this is the case, it is your responsibility to verify with your mortgage company that these property taxes have been paid. Example
There may also be different information in the same section indicating that prior year taxes remain unpaid for this parcel. Please call or visit our office to make payment arrangements. Example
