Payments while City hall Tax office is operating under social distancing:
- City hall is open but operating under social distancing, so only half of our staff will be present. If you must make payment in person, be prepared for longer wait times.
- To minimize everyone’s risk of exposure, avoid paying your tax in person. Certified (bank) checks or money orders (including postal money orders) via mail, UPS or FedEx:
Collector’s Office-Tax Sale-Rm 203
25 Dorrance St
Providence, RI 02903
- instead of mailing, you can put your payment in the dropbox located at the rear of City Hall (handicapped entrance).
- Credit and debit card payments at billpay.providenceri.gov.
(We do not recommend this method due to the credit card fee of 2.85%. Ex. On a payment of $2,500, the fee is an additional $71.25.
Do not use the e-check option, since your personal check will not clear in time for the tax sale.)
