 Partial & Advance Payments

Partial and Advance Payments

With the pace and financial demands of the November and December holiday season, property tax bills often become an afterthought -- and a strain on many individuals and families.  To help alleviate this stress, the St. Charles County Collector of Revenue accepts Partial and Advance Payments on property tax bills.

Taxpayers should note the following about Partial and Advance Payments:

Partial Payments

  • Partial Payments are available to help citizens who have fallen behind catch up by helping to reduce the total amount of late payment interest and penalty a taxpayer will have to pay. Partial Payments are accepted on both Personal Property and Real Estate tax bills.

  • There is a minimum payment of $20 for each Partial Payment.

  • Partial Payments will not prevent property from being offered in the Tax Certificate Sale; however, they can reduce the amount needed to redeem the property should the tax certificate sell. The receipt needed for vehicle registration(s) will only be released when a tax bill is finally paid in full.

  • For citizens who made Partial Payments, tax bills distributed later in the year will show the amount of tax assessed for the new tax year and the balance remaining to be paid on prior years' bills.

  • Ways to pay:

    • Check/money order/cashier's check by mail or in person (payable to Michelle D. McBride, Collector of Revenue).  The Collector's Office is located at the St. Charles County Administration Building, 201 N Second Street, St. Charles, MO.

    • Credit Card or eCheck online at this site or by calling 1.800.2PAY.TAX (1.800.272.9829), Jurisdiction Code 3513.

    • By cash in person at the Collector's Office.

For each Partial Payment, a receipt will be issued showing the remaining outstanding balance and presented to the payer (if payment is made in person) or mailed.

Advance Payments 

  • Advance Payments are available for citizens who are currently paid in full for the previous tax year and prior years and want to start making payments on the current year's bill(s).  Advance Payments are accepted on both Personal Property and Real Estate tax bills.

  • There is a minimum payment of $20 for each Advance Payment.

  • To determine Advance Payments and make an individual plan, McBride recommends that citizens use the previous year's tax bill as a "best estimate," adding in new personal property purchases if applicable.  The Collector's Office can also provide an estimated tax amount using last year's tax rates.

  • Citizens who want to make advance payments on Personal Property tax bills must have already submitted the Assessment Form for the current year to the County Assessor.  There are no such prerequisites for those who want to make advance payments on Real Estate tax bills.

  • For citizens who made Advance Payments, tax bills distributed later in the year will show the amount of tax assessed, the credit for any Advance Payments made, and, if applicable, the remaining balance due by Dec. 31 of the tax year.

  • Ways to pay (please note that credit card and eCheck payments are not accepted for Advance Payments online at this time):

    • Check/money order/cashier's check by mail or in person (payable to Michelle D. McBride, Collector of Revenue).  The Collector's Office is located at the St. Charles County Administration Building, 201 N Second Street, St. Charles, MO.
