Returned Checks & Partial Payments

Returned Checks

A return check fee will be added to the outstanding balance due for check(s) returned to our office. In addition to this fee, the taxes paid by the returned check will become due and payable along with applicable interest.

Partial Payments

The Trustee is pleased to accept partial payments on outstanding tax balances which are not subject to restrictive legal action as in the case of pending tax sales. To make a partial payment:

  • Enter the partial payment amount online using the Trustee website;
  • Use the Trustee mobile app called "payitShelby"; or
  • Mail the partial payment with identifying property information, such as an address or a parcel number listed on the “For” line of the check; or
  • Visit a branches / location and remit the partial payment amount to a Trustee representative.
