The Town of Eastham offers City Hall Systems to be used to make electronic payments. Payments may be made via ACH (electronic checking, or "EFT") or by Credit Card. Rates for online payments are: $.50 for EFT transactions (electronic checking), and 2.95% for credit card payments. In other words, if a tax liability is $1,000, the additional cost for using a credit card would be $29.50, making the total $1,029.50. EFT payments are usually received the next day. Credit Card payments may take up to one week to clear.
Current Fiscal Year bills are *generally* available to pay online through City Hall Systems. Please contact the office if you are unable to pay your bill online. This may mean it has gone past the stage of lateness that allows online payment.
For questions regarding the usage of the City Hall Systems, call City Hall Systems at 508-381-5455. For Questions regarding the payment itself, email The Treasurer/Tax Collector's Office.
