The Ray County Collector collects and distributes over 25 million dollars annually to over 60 entities within the county.  Annual tax statements are mailed in late October to early November of each year and are due by December 31st.   

We have added two additional payment methods this year:

DROP BOX located at the west entrance of the courthouse.  This can be used for your tax payment or to return your assessment list.  DO NOT LEAVE CASH.

TELEPHONE PAYMENTS can be made by calling 877-690-3729.  Access code is 3562.  You must have your bill number.  A service charge applies.


PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR DELINQUENT TAX SALE.  To participate in the tax sale on August 27, 2018 you must pre-register.  You can register August 1, 2018 thru August 24, 2018 @ 3:00 pm.  THERE WILL BE NO REGISTRATION ON THE MORNING OF THE TAX SALE.  Registration forms will be available online the first of July or contact the office be obtain a form.


RENEW YOUR TAGS ONLINE:  We provide the Department of Revenue your paid personal property information. This allows taxpayers to renew license plates on-line and the fee agent office to access the information when renewing in person.

   Payments are due in March, June and September.  Your balance due will be mailed to you in late October/early November and due by December 31st.  No installments will be accepted after September 30th.  If full payment is not received by the due date, penalty and interest will be charged on the entire tax amount.  See the back of your statement or contact the office for more information.
