Potter County Accepting overdue tax payments by credit card

Potter County
Accepting overdue tax payments by credit card

In response to their customers’ demands, more and more businesses have turned to the internet to accept payments. It’s an added convenience that can save time and money.

Public agencies, such as the IRS and the Pennsylvania Game Commission, have also implemented credit card payment options.

In Potter County, online ordering of dog licenses was introduced in 2010 and has proven to be a popular option for local pet owners.

Most recently, the Potter County Tax Claim Bureau (TCB) has joined the fray. Effective immediately, anyone who is behind in his real estate taxes can make payments via credit card.

The link is:

The taxpayer will need a “Web ID.” This information will be printed on reminders and certified mail notices sent to taxpayers by the TCB.

Any taxpayer who would like to learn more about online payment plan or obtain a Web ID should contact the Tax Claim Bureau at 274-0488.

The TCB has taken several steps to assist delinquent taxpayers, including the implementation of monthly payment schedules. It’s all geared toward preventing a taxpayer from losing his property due to non-payment of taxes through the legally required upset sale, held each September.

Online payments will be accepted through Aug. 30 for those who could be subject to the 2012 upset sale.

Also, dog owners are reminded that they can still purchase their 2012 dog licenses through the county’s website, (click on Departments/Treasurer’s Office), or in person at the County Treasurer’s Office in the Gunzburger Building. There is a $2.00 fee for online orders.
The treasurer’s office will receive automatic notification of online orders and will mail the tags to owners generally within one to two working days.

Police agencies and dog law enforcement officers also have access to the online system to facilitate return of lost dogs through license numbers. The site also offers a free service through which owners of lost pets can upload a picture and information.

An annual license for all dogs three months or older is required by state law as of Jan. 1. Discounts of $2.00 per license are available for older adults and people with disabilities. Lifetime licenses must be purchased in person at the Treasurer’s Office.

Applications printed from the county’s website ( should be filled out and mailed with payment to County Treasurer, 1 N. Main St. Suite 202, Coudersport PA 16915. Cost is $8.45 per license, or $6.45 if the dog is spayed or neutered.

It would be a nice option to use a credit card or debit card to pay our taxes that are not delinquent too.

AMEN 8:18pm !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Would be a win-win for the payer and collector. We could keep our homes and the County would recieve money throught the year and have a better chance of collecting said monies.

My sister is a tax collector. She would lose her job if this system was changed. But she said the state law would have to be changed to allow taxes to be paid by credit card. So this is just for overdue taxes.
