Credit Card Payments For Back Taxes, Dog Licenses

From Potter County Today

backtaxesAnother online option has been added by the county government. Effective immediately, anyone who is behind in his real estate taxes can make payments via credit card. The link is: The taxpayer will need a “Web ID.” This information will be printed on reminders and certified mail notices sent to taxpayers by the Potter County Tax Claim Bureau. Any taxpayer who would like to learn more about the online payment plan or obtain a Web ID should contact the Tax Claim Bureau at 274-0488.


The TCB has taken several steps to assist delinquent taxpayers, including the implementation of monthly payment schedules. It’s all geared toward preventing a taxpayer from losing his property due to non-payment of taxes through the legally required upset sale, held each September. Online payments will be accepted through Aug. 30 for those who could be subject to the 2012 upset sale.

There is a $2.00 fee for online orders. The treasurer’s office will receive automatic notification of online orders and will mail the tags to owners generally within one to two working days. Police agencies and dog law enforcement officers also have access to the online system to facilitate return of lost dogs through license numbers. The site also offers a free service through which owners of lost pets can upload a picture and information.  An annual license for all dogs three months or older is required by state law as of Jan. 1. Discounts of $2.00 per license are available for older adults and people with disabilities. Lifetime licenses must be purchased in person at the Treasurer’s Office. Applications printed from the county’s website (pottercountypa. net) should be filled out and mailed with payment to County Treasurer, 1 N. Main St. Suite 202, Coudersport PA 16915. Cost is $8.45 per license, or $6.45 if the dog is spayed or neutered.
