Jefferson County Treasurer Jerry DiTullio has closed the property tax payment drop box located on the outside of the Jefferson County Administration and Court Facility. The drop box was tampered with on the evening of Tuesday, April 9, in an attempted theft of payment checks. The checks in the drop box were not accessed and the drop box was not breached.

The closure of the drop box was done out of an abundance of caution and the utmost consideration for the security and safety of taxpayers’ funds.

“The perpetrators tried to drill out the lock twice in one night. I have decided that the risk to taxpayers associated with any potential theft of tax payments and fraud against taxpayers is too significant to ignore,” said Treasurer DiTullio. “My department has closed and locked the external drop box to prevent any further public access. Plans are underway to have the drop box permanently removed by our facilities team.”

Please note a drop- box is still available inside the atrium/front lobby of the Jefferson County Administration and Courts Facility. This drop-off box can be accessed during regular business hours which are listed below.

Office Hours:

•  Monday – Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
•  Friday – Closed
