Tax Collection Division

How You Can Pay Us:

East Providence offers four ways to pay your taxes and water/sewer bills:

1) In Person: Residents can choose to pay their taxes and water/sewer bills directly to the Tax Collection Division office located at City Hall, room 104.  Here, we accept cash, checks, credit card (MasterCard & Visa) and debit card payments.  Please note that there is a 3% convenience fee for credit/debit card payments that is charged by the company that processes the transaction.  The City of East Providence does not receive any part of the convenience fee.  Also, note that it tends to get busy at the Tax Collection Division as a payment deadline draws near.  Lines may form that usually move quickly, but during these times please be prepared for a short wait. 

2) City Hall Deposit Drop-Box:  There is a convenient drop-box to the right of the entry door on the Grove Avenue side of City Hall where you can leave your payment 24/7.  This drop-box is regularly picked up with payments processed during our hours of operation.  Please note that we only accept check payments in the drop-box.  Do not pay with cash or credit/debit cards in the drop box.  Also, so we can accurately process your payment, please include your detachable payment stub with your drop-box transaction and enclose it in the envelope.

3) By Mail:  Check payments for taxes and water/sewer charges can be mailed directly to our lock box processor.  Do not mail cash or credit/debit card information.  Please include your detachable payment stub so that your payment can be quickly, and accurately processed.  Our payment-by-mail lock box addresses are listed below.  Please note that there are separate addresses for tax and water/sewer payments:
