CUYAHOGA COUNTY, Ohio — The deadline for the real estate tax collection for Cuyahoga County has been extended by one week until Jan. 28, 2021, due to concerns that the postal service may not get tax bills to taxpayers in a timely manner, the county said in a release.

“We are concerned that the postal service will not deliver real estate tax bills to county residents in a timely manner, therefore, we are extending the deadline,” said Cuyahoga County Treasurer W. Christopher Murray II in a news release. “We are encouraging people to view and pay their tax bill online or through one of our other recommended payment options, including by mail, by phone, or through the drop box located to the right of the main entrance of the County Administrative Headquarters.”

The tax bills will be mailed the week of Jan. 4 but tax bills will be viewed online.

Taxpayers can still pay by cash, check, money order, credit and debit card at the cashier department located on the first floor of the county administrative headquarters.

Taxpayers can also pay using the following methods.

  • By Mail: Mail your check or money order and the bottom portion of your tax bill
  • Online: Pay by e-check or credit/debit card
  • By Phone: Call 1-800-272-9829 to pay by credit/debit card for Spanish speaking: 1-800-487-4567
