Paying Delinquent Property Taxes


To pay delinquent property taxes in person, visit the Tax Claim office at the Erie County Courthouse, 140 West Sixth Street, Room 110. The office is open Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please note this office is closed for all county holidays.

To pay online, please follow these steps:

  1. Search for the property in question.
  2. Once you find the desired property in the search results, click the parcel ID link to view the parcel profile.
  3. Click the “Taxes” link near the top of the page.
  4. At the bottom of the tax profile page, there is a link to pay delinquent taxes. Follow the on-screen instructions to enter your payment information
