CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH – The 2019 second half real estate tax deadline has been extended by four weeks to August 13, 2020. This move was recently approved by the State Tax Commissioner. It is expected that tax bills will be in hand approximately 20 days prior to the deadline per state law.

“We are doing everything we can to provide relief to taxpayers affected by the economic impact of the coronavirus while maintaining the financial support needed by our cities, villages, townships, and school districts,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish. “This extension will allow County taxpayers to delay paying their property taxes without accruing penalties or interest.”

If taxpayers are experiencing difficulties with making their payment, they should contact the County Treasurer at (216) 443-7420 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, or email Treascomment@cuyahogacounty.us.

While the County Administration building is closed to the public, taxpayers are encouraged to use regular mail, online resources, or the County drop box to make their payments.

The drop box is used for check or money order payments only. Drop boxes are available at the following locations:

Cuyahoga County Administrative Headquarters
