  • Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE has announced second half  2012 real estate tax bills will be mailed starting Monday.
    The closing date for payment will be July 26, with the exception of military personnel. Property taxes are deferred for military reservists who are on active duty.
    Applications can be obtained by calling 330-643-2641 or visiting  http://fiscaloffice.summitoh.net.
    There are several ways for taxpayers to make payment:
    1. In person: Payments can be made in person at the Summit County Fiscal Office, Treasurers Division, 3rd floor of the Ohio Building, 175 S. Main St., Akron 44308. Our office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
    2. By mail: Mailed payments must be U.S. postmarked by July 26, 2013 to avoid the statutory 10 percent penalty for late payment.  A private meter is not valid for establishing the date of payment.
    3. At banks who participate in the Regional Tax Collection System: A list of participating banks is included on your tax bill.  Checks must be payable to the banking institution.
    4. Online or by phone: Tax bills can be paid online or by phone through a secure payment service provided by Official Payments Corporation. Taxpayers will need their parcel number on-hand. A service fee will be charged by Official Payments Corporation. To pay taxes online or by phone, go to http://fiscaloffice.summitoh.net/index.php/on-line-tax-payments.
    5. At a MoneyGram location: In person cash payments can be made through MoneyGram, a new payment service offered at 35,000 locations nationwide.
    MoneyGram provides guaranteed same-day transactions.  A service fee will be charged by Official Payments Corporation. To locate a MoneyGram center, visit www.OfficialPayments.com/locate or call 1-800-MoneyGram.
