How to Pay Taxes

There are a variety of ways you can pay your taxes:

  1. In Person - McKenzie County Courthouse, 2015 5th St NW, Watford City, ND
  2. By Mail - McKenzie County Treasurer, 201 5th St NW, Suite 504, Watford City, ND  58854
  3. Online - by either credit/debit card or e-check.  TAXPAYER NOTICE:  There will be a convenience fee of 2.65% of the transaction amount with a minimum fee of $3.00 for all credit card payments.  There will be a convenience fee of $1.50 for all electronic check payments.

Real Estate taxes are mailed out in early December each year and Mobile Home taxes later that month.  Both are due January 1st, but you receive a 5% discount if you pay in full by February 15.  Payments are applied to the oldest outstanding taxes first.  The 1st half is due March 1st and the 2nd half is due October 15th to avoid penalties.  (You do not receive the discount if you pay your taxes in halves or if the full amount is not paid by February 15th.)

If you have not received your tax statement by the first of the year, please contact the McKenzie County Treasurer's Office at (701) 444-3616 ext. 3

Properties that have not had taxes paid in 3 years will move into foreclosure.
