Other Ways to Pay
Payments can be made online with an eCheck or credit/debit card using the links below. Onetime eChecks are free. Multiple parcels can be paid with one eCheck. A 49 cent fee is charged by Instant Payments for each recurring eCheck payment including Auto Bill Pay. Credit or debit card payments have a 2.5% fee ($2.50 minimum). Multiple parcels can be paid together with one transaction, but Auto Bill Pay must be signed up separately for each parcel. Visa, Master Card and Discover are accepted. Grand County does not receive any of the fees. You will need your parcel number to make a payment through Instant Payments. It can be found in the upper left of the tax bill mailed to you or find your parcel number here.
Pay by Phone -
Call Instant Payments at 1-800-764-0844 to pay by eCheck or credit/debit card. Same fees apply as above.
Other Ways to Pay
Pay by Mail
- Mail a check or money order payable to Grand County Treasurer and addressed to: PO Box 1268, Moab, UT 84532. Please note your parcel number(s) on the check. You can pay multiple parcels with one check. Please do not send cash. Payments must be postmarked by the due date or penalty will be owed.
Pay in Person
- Pay in person by cash, check, money order, eCheck or credit/debit card at our office in the Grand County Courthouse, 125 E. Center St., Moab. Office hours are Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm. Grand County is closed on Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving. The same fees for eChecks and credit cards apply as for electronic payments.
Through your financial institution
– Contact your financial institution to find out how to set up an automatic payment from your account and find out what fees may apply. Payment amounts can be based on last year’s taxes but need to be adjusted annually in November to account for the actual tax charged and avoid late penalties or interest. Call 259-1338 for help with estimating your monthly payments. Please reference your parcel number with all payments. Payments can be sent to: Grand County Treasurer, PO Box 1268, Moab, UT 84532.
Prepayment Coupons - In January, the Treasurer’s office mails out coupon booklets to taxpayers who request them (email us to request coupons or let us know you no longer need them). These coupons help taxpayers to make monthly, optional prepayments and avoid a large tax bill in November. Coupons can be mailed in or dropped off at our office. Coupons are based on the last year’s taxes and divide it into 10 payments. The taxpayer receives 9 coupons to be paid February to October with any remaining tax appearing on the November tax bill. Current year taxes are not finalized until September so the final payment will be different from the previous 9 payments. Instead of mailing in your prepayment checks, you can set up automatic monthly payments from your bank account or credit card; see above.
Taxpayers who use at least some of their coupons during the year will be automatically enrolled in the coupon program for the following year.
Mortgage Company Escrow Payments
- If you are paying into escrow for property tax with your monthly mortgage payment, then your mortgage company should pay the property tax for you. If you are unsure about whether your tax will be paid, please contact your mortgage company. Your tax bill will indicate if a mortgage company is planning to pay your tax. Each fall, mortgage companies request the amount of property tax owed for all the properties that they have collected escrow payments. The Treasurer's Office sends that information to the mortgage companies and lists the name of the company on the taxpayer's bill. If a mortgage company listed on the tax bill fails to pay the tax on time, an extension of the deadline to pay without penalty will be granted.
When Are Property Taxes Due?
Real property taxes are due November 30 of any given year unless that date falls on a weekend, then it is due the following Monday. In 2023, current year taxes will be due Thursday, November 30th. All county offices will be closed Nov 23th - 26th, 2023 for Thanksgiving. Tax bills are sent no latter than Nov 1st of each year.
