Tax Collection

The City of Marion Tax Collector works under the administrative direction of the Finance Director. The primary responsibility of the Tax Collector is the billing for and collection of all tax money due to the city, as well as the enforcement of timely payments and delivery delinquency notices.

Property Taxes

Tax bills are mailed annually in August and are due on the first day of September. If payments are not received by the fifth of January the account will become delinquent. New property owners who do not receive a tax bill are encouraged to contact the Tax Collector to obtain a copy. Please also notify the Tax Collector of any mailing address changes. A lost or undelivered bill does not excuse late payment.

Payment Options

For customer convenience, the City of Marion accepts payments in a number of ways. Cash or Check payments can be made in any one of the following ways:

  • In-person at the Tax Collector counter located at City Hall, except holidays
  • Through the City Hall drive-through located at City Hall, except holidays
  • The drop box (checks only) located next to the drive-through window at City Hall during non-business hours
  • By mail 

The City of Marion also accepts Visa and Master Card debit or credit cards in person at City Hall. A checkout fee is charged for the use of credit or debit cards. The City does not accept debit or credit cards over the phone or online at this time.
