Based on postmarks, we are seeing that it is taking approximately 7-14 days for the Post Office to get your payment to us. Our 5 staff members are processing payments on approximately 297,000 accounts as quickly as possible.
As long as your payment is postmarked on time, your payment will be processed as on time, and no penalties or interest will be assessed on your account.
Those 5 staff members that are processing payments are the same 5 staff members taking calls and returning over 600 phone messages daily, so please be patient for your payment to be received and posted. If you call, please leave only one voice message.
You can check the status of your account in real time at adcotax.com, which allows you to see the exact information the Treasury staff sees.
Everyone at the Treasury is committed to providing the best service possible. We thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
Very truly yours,
Lisa L. Culpepper, J.D.,
Treasurer & Public Trustee
