USPS Postmark for Property Tax Payments

When mailing your property tax payment be advised that the Lincoln County Tax Collector uses the official post mark date stamp from the United States Postal Service, to post your payment.  Please allow sufficient mail time for your payment to arrive, with a post mark on or before the actual due date   ORS 311.505

Due to recent changes with USPS (the Salem OR facility closed), mailings could be subject to re-routing from the original destination and forwarded on to Portland OR for the official post mark date.  For example:  If your payment is mailed from your mail box in Newport OR, it may be re-routed to Portland OR and post marked at the Portland OR facility.  If you take your payment envelope directly to the post office, upon your request, USPS will date stamp it at that location to ensure the post mark date is timely.

When making a payment online at our website the Tax Collector will use the initiation date as the official postmark of your payment. 

When paying online through your own banking institution, make sure to allow sufficient time for your payment to arrive by the due date.
