Stella is wondering what the heck is going on?
Hi everyone, sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Things are a bit crazy right now. The Treasurer has extended the payment deadline to September 1st with no penalty. Partial payments will be accepted. The ballot drop off box is open for tax payments at the east entrance of the Citizens Service Center. We hope to reopen April 13th. Hope you all are safe and well. Take care!
All of us in the Treasurer and Public Trustee offices hope everyone is safe and well. We are doing all we can from home to serve our citizens, but access to data is limited. Please rest assured, all deadlines have been postponed/extended without penalty until all of this is over. Take care!
In light of all that's going on, we here at the Treasurer's Office want to ensure everyone is aware of all the information and services available on our website: http://treasurer.elpasoco.com. Online options: you may pay your taxes, view payment history, & view or print a copy of your tax statement. Stay safe and well
