Working For You

Our programs and deadlines are primarily administered by the Oregon Department of Revenue.  At this time, we haven't been notified of any program changes but we understand that there is potential legislation and/or rule making being considered to address the current COVID-19 ramifications.  We will do our best to post any property tax related adjustments or change on our website as we're aware of them.
Starting July 21st, the payment and public information counters will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-3pm.  You can also reach us by phone Monday – Thursday from 10am-3pm at 541-682-4321 or by email Monday – Friday between 8am-5pm at  We are also accepting appointments. 

We appreciate your understanding as we do our part to limit public contact.

Tax payments can now be made by telephone using credit card or electronic check – (833) 819-5119. Please have your account number ready.  Fees apply. 
The purpose of Assessment and Taxation is to appraise property, to calculate, collect and distribute taxes, and to provide related information to the public in a manner that merits the highest degree of confidence in our integrity, efficiency, and fairness. We are a broad service organization mandated by the Oregon Constitution and Oregon law and collect revenue for 85 taxing jurisdictions, including local governments, schools, and special districts that provide essential public services for the citizens of Lane County.
