"Official Notice"

Regarding Electronic Payments on Treasurer-Tax Collector's Website


I acknowledge that I have read and accepted the terms of this notice. I understand that by choosing to make a payment to Contra Costa County electronically, I may be subject to a third party imposed convenience fee; the amount of which will be determined by the payment method selected. I also understand that I can avoid a convenience fee by making payment by in form of cash or check directly to the Contra Costa County Tax Collector (CCCTC).

I am further aware that certain types of financial accounts, including but not limited to home equity lines of credit and brokerage accounts, may not be accessible by electronic payment. Also, that some financial institutions require very specific account information for processing electronic payments, information that may not be readily available or included on a check or other negotiable instrument drawn on the account. Discrepancies or omissions in the information provided to the third party processor may result in the rejection of a payment. Payments rejected for any reason will be subject to the County standard returned check fee. Additionally, any amounts due may be deemed delinquent if not paid in good funds by the delinquent date; which will result in additional penalty and interest charges.

I also understand that a confirmation number provided by the third party processor does not constitute a paid receipt Taxes, fines, fees and other charges are not considered paid until the payment has been received and posted by Contra Costa County. I accept that I am solely responsible for the accuracy and usability of the information I provide. I acknowledge that Contra Costa County assumes "NO LIABILITY" as a result of errors, omissions, or discrepancies that result in a non-acceptance or non-authorization of my transaction.
