1) Property Tax Account Number - this can be located on the upper right of your statement.

If you do not have your tax statement, you can find your account information using Property Search Online.https://apps.jacksoncountyor.gov/PSO/
2) For debit or credit card payments, you will need the card number, expiration date, and CVN (3-digit code on the back of your credit card).
3) For payments by e-check, you will need your bank's routing transit number and account number for payments by e-check. This information can be found at the bottom of your check.

Make a payment over the telephone by calling 1-866-493-1572. Have your account number handy.
Most banks and credit unions provide online bill pay services for customers at no charge. The Jackson County Tax Collector is registered to receive online bill payments electronically and should be listed as a payee on your financial institution's online bill pay website.
Your property tax statement has both the account number and the amount due. If you are paying multiple tax accounts, enter a separate payment for each account using the property tax account as the bill pay account in order for your payments to be posted accurately.
When paying online through your financial institution, schedule your payment early enough for the county to receive your payment by the due date. Scheduling requirements are specified in the rules and regulations on each financial institution's website (typically two to three business days prior to the due date). If Jackson County does not receive your payment by the due date, discounts cannot be allowed and interest will be charged.
