Expanded hours a convenience for taxpayers

COVINGTON, Ky. - With property tax payments due by end of the day Oct. 15, Covington City Hall is continuing to open earlier and close later as a convenience for taxpayers.
The Finance Customer Service walk-in window - located just inside the entrance to City Hall at 20 West Pike St. - is open on a temporary basis from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Previously the window was open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The window is where residents can come in person to pay property taxes, as well as any other tax bill, fee or fine owed the City.
“We’ve seen some residents take advantage of the extended hours, but we want to make sure that everybody knows about it,” Covington Finance Director Muhammed Owusu said.
Residents have five ways to pay their tax bill: 
  • At the window.
  • Through an updated, user friendly online program. There are two paths to the online taxpayer portal from the City website’s home page, which is HERE. Clicking the “Make a Payment” logo leads to the general tax page. Clicking “Property Tax” under the “Forms & Documents” section leads directly to the taxpayer portal, HERE.
  • By mail at P.O. Box 643749, Cincinnati, OH 45264.
  • By calling (859) 292-2180.
  • By dropping the payment off in a secure, after-hours drop box that appears as a slot on the outside wall of City Hall (to the left of the main entrance but not under the overhang). 
The property tax rate this year is the same as last year.
