Payment Options for Individual Income Tax

To make paying taxes more convenient and hassle-free, the Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) allows the use of:

  • Electronic Check
  • Credit/Debit Cards
  • Mail
  • Direct Debit

OTR will receive the electronic transaction from the vendor and apply it to the taxpayer's account.  The District's third-party payment vendor will charge taxpayers a nominal fee for the credit/debit card transaction based on 2.5 percent of the transaction amount.
