Payment Options


To avoid penalties, if you pay your taxes by mail during the last days of the month, you must witness a timely U.S. postmark being affixed to the envelope. Pitney Bowes (corporate meters) and foreign postmarks are not acceptable. If you choose to pay electronically through your bank, please allow 7 days for mailing as typically the banks do not have U.S. postmark.


As a convenience to our taxpayers, the Town of Mount Pleasant offers the option of paying taxes online. There is no fee for paying by electronic check (ACH) and a 2.25% service fee for paying by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or Amex). Access the Online Tax Payment page to get started. Please note that you will need to have your bill number and the amount of the original billing to complete the payment transaction (see the following note).

Please note: To access a copy of your bill, view the Tax Status Information page. Please note you will have to accept the terms of the site > enter your name, address, or section/block/lot.
