Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - 2023 property tax payments are due on Saturday, Sept. 30. The deadline falls on a Saturday this year; it does not move to the next business day.
Property tax payments must be received or postmarked by Sept. 30 to be considered timely.
Payments received or postmarked after Sept. 30 will be considered late and will incur late fees.
Property tax payments can be submitted:
- By mail to CBJ Treasury, 155 South Seward St., Juneau, AK 99801
- By cash or check in person at City Hall during regular business hours (see below)
*Credit cards are not accepted when paying in person
- Dropped in one of the City’s three dropbox locations at Super Bear IGA, Foodland IGA, or City Hall
- By eCheck or credit card online through InvoiceCloud
*Credit card transactions are subject to a convenience fee; there is no additional fee to pay by eCheck
A mortgage lender may be paying your property taxes on your behalf.
Note that many lenders do not make tax payments until close to the due date.
Talk to your lender if you are unsure they will make a payment, or check your balance on InvoiceCloud.
CBJ cannot confirm if a lender intends to make a payment on your behalf.
Please be aware that CBJ will no longer initiate a direct debit for property tax bills.
If you previously had a property tax auto-pay set up through CBJ, you will need to set up your scheduled payment with InvoiceCloud.
Extended Cash Office Hours
The CBJ Cash Office, located on the first floor of City Hall off Seward Street, will be open for extended hours the last week in September:
- Monday - Friday, September 25-29: 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
- Saturday, September 30: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
CBJ Property Taxes submitted by mail must have a United States Postal Service (USPS) postmark dated on or before Sept. 30, 2023, to avoid late fees and penalties.
Taxpayers who send their payments by mail are cautioned that the USPS only postmarks certain mail depending on the type of postage used and may not postmark on the same day the item was deposited in the mail by the sender.
If a payment is received after the deadline with a late or missing postmark, the payment is considered late, and penalties will be added to your bill.
CAUTION: Online bill payments made through online banking systems (for example, via a "Bill Pay" tool in the taxpayer's personal banking account) are often sent by bulk mail using a permit imprint and do not include a postmark.
These payments can take up to two weeks or more to reach our office and will be considered late if received after Sept. 30th.
If you have questions regarding payment of your property taxes, contact the Treasury Office at AR@juneau.gov, or call (907) 586-5215 ext. 4907.
Please include your parcel number or the physical address that specifically identifies your property with any inquiries.
