Blaine County property taxpayers have until Monday to mail in their payments for 2020, according to the Blaine County Treasurer’s Office.

While property taxes are officially due on Sunday, Dec. 20, the county will accept payments postmarked by Monday, Dec. 21, since the due date falls on a weekend, Treasurer John David Davidson said.

Taxpayers can submit their payments online, by phone, by mail or using a drop box at the front doors of the Blaine County Annex Building in Hailey. In-person payments will also be accepted; masks are required and social distancing must be practiced.

Payments can be made via cash, check, money order, credit or debit card, or electronic check.

Property taxes may be paid in two equal halves, with the first half due Dec. 20. The second half is due by June 20. Payments not made on time will be subject to a 2 percent late fee and 12 percent interest per annum charge, per Idaho Code. Partial payments are also accepted, but late fees and interest will accrue on the amounts outstanding.

To pay over the phone, call 208-788-5530. Online payments can be made at client.pointandpay.net/web/BlaineCountyTreasurerID.

Credit or debit cards will be charged a 2.5 percent fee. Electronic checks will be charged a fee of $1.50.
